Following careful selection, the grapes are vinified according to traditional Chianti Classico methods. The wine ages in French oak barrels of 35hl capacity for two years and is then refined further in the bottle, for a minimum of three months.
Color: ruby red, becoming garnet with age.
Nose: ample, intense and refined, with excellent variety of fruity aromas, and a gentle touch of spyces released from the wood.
Palate: intense and persistent, with well balanced tannins which support its structure.
This wine is particularly suited for rich meat or game sauces, with red meats, roasts and dry cheeses. It should be served at a temperature of 18°-20°C.
