Winemaker's Notes:

Santa Margherita is renowned for its elegant and authentic Italian style. This Chianti Classico has been crafted with the same commitment to heritage and quality, with grapes from Santa Margherita's vineyards in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti Classico zone.

Santa Margherita offers an exemplary representation of the traditional, distinctive characteristics of the Sangiovese grape: elegant, with tannic austerity and complex aromas.

Color: Deep, bright ruby red

Aroma: Nuances of wild berries, spices and cherries

Taste: Well integrated oak, blackberry and iris stand out
