Winemaker's Notes:

This traditional estate-owned Chianti Classico hails from Sangiovese vines with an average age of 25 years. Produced in a style that honors the time-honored traditions of past generations, the 2008 San Fabiano is a lovely medium-bodied effort with dusty cherry and black currant fruit, sweet cured meat, dark pepper spice and a whisper of vanilla oak.

About San Fabiano Cacchiano:

Guido Serio and his wife Isa arrived at San Fabiano in 1983 and immediately made investments aimed at producing quality wines. They have gradually made progress over the time, renewing the vineyards, the wine-making chain, the bottling and the cellar for refining the wine in wooden barrels.

San Fabiano Calcinaia produces wines appreciated all over the world: Chianti Classico vintage, Chianti Classico Riserva "Cellole," Cerviolo Rosso Igt, Cabernet sauvignon Igt, Casa Boschino Igt, Cerviolo Bianco, a small production of the traditional Vin Santo of Chianti Classico, and of Grappa of Chianti Classico "Cellole," as well as, of course, the perfumed and fragrant extra virgin olive oil.
