Chianti has long been regarded by many as the "most Italian" of wines, not only because it is the most widely produced classified wine, but also because it possesses a unique personality.
Banfi Chianti Classico embodies all of the characteristics that have made this wine an enduring classic: an alluring bouquet of black fruit and violets; rich flavors of cherry and leather; supple tannins and good acidity for dining. Fermentation takes place with a traditional skin contact of 8 to 10 days. Aging in French oak barriques for 7 months follows. Bottling is carried out in the summer following the harvest.
Banfi Chianti Classico is the perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of foods, including red-sauced pastas, grilled meats, and roasts.
