In the beautiful olive and cypress-studded countryside between Florence and Siena lay the quaint hilltop villages of the Chianti Classico region. The wine of the same name is produced exclusively in this charming and beautiful area. From vineyards planted to a minimum of 80% Sangiovese and a maximum of 20% of Canaiolo and other red grape varietals. After the final blend is assembled, the wine is aged for six months or longer in oak casks. The wine is bottle during the second year, then bottle aged in our temperature controlled cellars for 4/6 months before release. It is a ruby red wine with garnet reflections on aging. The bouquet is intense with hints of violets, berries and cherries. On the palate it is velvety, well rounded, full bodied and well balanced.
