Pronounced plum and raspberry with floral notes, violets in particular. The finish highlights a spiced layer of pepper.
Bold at first followed by sculpted tannins. Sincere, consistent and enduring finish.
Full tasting Notes
Characteristic on the palate, markedly Chianti-style, elevated by composed and refined ageing.
Offal, mature cheeses, soups, meat sauces, bean soups.
The fermentation and maceration extend for about 15 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats with frequent pumpover. Once the malolactic fermentation has ended, the wine is refined in large steel and concrete tanks at controlled temperature for a few months before being bottled.
The Chianti Superiore denomination marks the bridge between Chianti DOCG and Chianti Classico, but observes its own particularly strict production regulation.
