A gorgeous Tuscan red. It's bright, juicy and fresh with swathes of sweet and sour cherry, dusty yet silky tannins and a lifted floral element which just completes the package. Delicious stuff. Pass the Parmigiano!

It comes from vineyards located at a great altitude in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, around a Romanesque church dating back to the 10th century. It uniquely combines the freshness and elegance of Sangiovese with the soft structure of Merlot.

VINIFICATION AND MATURATION The grapes are hand-picked and then vinified with great care by using the traditional method of fermentation in the presence of the skins so as to highlight the strong personality conferred by the soils of Castellina in Chianti. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine matures in Slavonian oak barrels for 12 months.

COLOR Ruby-red color.

BOUQUET Bursting with strawberry, red berries and notes of sage, spice cake, and subtle earth.

PALATE Vibrant and medium-bodied revealing lively cherry and exotic spices that lead to polished tannins and a delicate finish.

FOOD COMBINATIONS Richly-flavored dishes of the traditional Chianti cuisine like red tomato based sauces, as well as grilled meats and mature cheeses.
