Winemaker's Notes

Spicy, medium-bodied Chianti with classic dried Tuscan cherry, cracked pepper and intense floral aromas reminiscent of rosewater and violets. Well structured with a focused and persistent finish.

All of the grapes are hand picked from estate vineyards grown on limestone and clay soils. Each vine is selectively picked more than once to ensure the all of the grapes are optimally ripened. The vineyards are all situated around the Sonnino castle and have South and South East exposure.

85% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo, 5% Trebbiano and Malvasia

Will pair well with Rosemary-infused white beans with grilled pork chops, polenta casserole, pasta in tomato sauce and gourmet pizzas.

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs.
