This Chianti wine uses Sangiovese, Canaiolo Nero and Colorino grapes grown in hilly Tuscany at up to 700 metres above sea level on soil which consists of arenaceous, marl and lime substrata, clayey schist and sand. After steeping on skins, alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, 20% of the wine is left to improve for 3 months in Austrian oak casks with 30% of this in new oak.
This careful production creates a wine of intense aromas and complexity that appears bright red with purple reflections, becoming garnet when aged in bottle. The bouquet shows red berries and morello cherry, alongside hints of cloves, vanilla, oak, and even pineapple. Rich, velvety and smooth on the palate with well-balanced flavours. Try with mushrooms, pasta, game, roasts, barbecued meat and mature cheeses.
Le Chiantigiane are a forward thinking, quality-orientated co-operative in the heart of Chianti. Their strong tradition of working together has given them great success and they produce a range of styles from great value, authentic Chianti to single estate Chianti Classico which offers high quality for excellent value.
