Winemaker's Notes:

A dynamic and adaptable red wine which has retrieved the old tradition, now in disuse, of mixing red chianti with white grapes: the body and fruity taste of sangiovese and canaiolo combined with the softness and fluidity of trebbiano and white malvasia create a pleasing wine suitable even for contemporary gastronomic creations.

Light-bodied, harmonious and round on the palate, with flavors of red fruits, black currant and plum.

About Castello di Verrazzano:

The spirit and industry of Verrazzano's youthful owners, Luigi & Silvia Cappellini, have played a major role in the burgeoning reputation of this ancient estate in the Greve district of Tuscany's Chianti Classico zone. 105 acres of vines thrive in Verrazzano's limestone-rich soil. Though present in southern areas of Chianti Classico, limestone is unique to Verrazzano in the cooler, norhtern sector, accounting for the singular blend of muscularity and finesse evident in Verrazzano wines.
