Santa Margherita is renowned for its elegant and authentic Italian style. This Chianti Classico has been crafted with the same commitment to heritage and quality, with grapes from our vineyards in the town of Greve located in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti Classico zone. Santa Margherita offers an exemplary representation of the traditional, distinctive characteristics of the Sangiovese grape: elegant, with tannic austerity and complex aromas.
Color: Deep ruby red
Aroma: Sweet sensations of wood envelope ripe, spicy fruit
Taste: Mouth-filling fruit impresses one with its roundedness and gentle tannins; sensations of ripe, sweet fruit lead into a spicy aftertaste. This is an elegant wine that reflects fully the characteristics of its terroir and is also a modern interpretation that embodies Italy's most classic vineyard area.
"Perfect for stay-home dinners or informal gatherings between friends, Santa Margherita (of Pinot Grigio fame) introduces this easy, fresh Chianti Classico. The wine is redolent of cherry, almond, cola and blue flower and would pair well with pizza or pasta. — M.L. (5/1/2009)" -Rated 87, Wine Enthusiast
