Winemaker's Notes

The wine is aged for approximately 12 months in Slavonian oak casks, traditionally used in the production of quality Chianti. The result is a rich, full bodied wine with spicy cloves on the nose and a wonderfully refined black cherr y and plum fruitiness on a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Chianti Classico is a gorgeous, racy wine laced with red fruit, flowers, spices and mint, all supported by fine, silky tannins. The floral elements are quite prominent and give the 2009 an element of brightness that is highly attractive. This caressing, supple Chianti Classico should be at its finest over the next decade. The Chianti Classico is 100% Sangiovese that spent 12 months in Slavonian oak casks. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. "
