This Chianti Classico from Tenuta di Campomaggio uses Sangiovese grapes from vines of an average age of 20 years. The wine is matured 70% in steel, 30% in large oak barrels, for 6-8 months. The final blend remains for 12 months in steel before further ageing in bottle for 3-6 months before release.

Bright ruby ​​red un colour, the nose shows fresh black cherry and nuances of small red fruits, light violet and marked balsamic notes. The palate has excellent acidity and young tannins alongside rich fruit, with a savoury finish. Suitable for further ageing up to 10 years, try with cured meats such as salami, simple pasta dishes, or pecorino cheese.

The Tenuta di Campomaggio property stands on the Tuscan hillside of Campomaggio village. One of the most renowned areas for Chianti, their 32 hectares of vineyards are located at altitudes between 280 and 480 metres. The chalky-clay rich soil has lots of rock and stone, with 85% Sangiovese plantings and the remaining 15% Canaiolo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
