Fruit for this wine was sourced from estate and premium vineyards located in Tuscany's prized chianti classico winegrowing region. Immediately following harvest, maceration on the skins was enlisted for 15 days at controlled temperatures of 2s0 -26C (so0 -820 F) to extract Maximum color and flavor compounds. Natural Malolactic fermentation (large botti) followed to round out the wine while retaining its natural acidity and freshness. Most of the wine (60%) was aged for 10 months in French oak casks (15HL-35HL-SOHL), with a smaller amount (20%) aged in neutral, small oak barrels for 8-9 months. The remaining wine (20%) matured in 2OOHL cement tanks for 10 months. Aging in this manner provided a diverse range of flavors and textures with which to craft the final blend.
Our Chianti Classico is crafted from a selection of estate grown grapes. In the glass the wine promises fragrant aromas of violet and red berries. On the mouth-watering palate, classic red cherry flavours and notes of white pepper and nutmeg come through backed up by firm tannins creating a well-balanced wine with juicy acidity and freshness.
This wine pairs perfectly with Italian cheeses such as pecorino with truffles, provolone and parmesan. Also, great with pastas and a simple tomato or meat sauce, grilled steak, risotto with mushrooms and roasted pork prepared in the Tuscan tradition (with garlic, herbs and fennel seeds).
