Winemaker's Notes

Chianti classico reserve. The Sangiovese grapes and Merlot are made wine separately in wood vats and, depending on years, the assembly can change a little, but usually it is about 85% of Sangiovese and 15% of Merlot. The maturation occurs in French wood barrels for about 12 months. The ruby colour is full, with great limpidness. Smelling it one is struck by the pleasant fresh notes that combine marvellously with aromas more evolved, that remind of the cinchona and of tamarind. Tasting it the wine appears soft, almost creamy, with a powerful structure but not aggressive. The tannic component is well amalgamated with the alcoholic part. This wine's persistence gustative is fully pleasing.
