Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red in color, with typical, extremely complex notes of ripe fruit and smooth, spicy hints of oak. This is a well-balanced and full-bodied wine with an intense and ripe tannic structure. It has a pleasent after taste and long finish.
My Notes:

About Vignavecchia:

Vignavecchia estate is located at about one kilometer from Radda in Chianti. The cellar, completely surrounded by the vineyards, is an old country farmhouse which was completely restored and enlarged in 1997. In this modern cellar take place the complete vinification process and bottling of the whole production; one part of the building is destined to the aging of the wine in oak barrels.
