Grape varieties: Made from Sangiovese grapes (80%), with the addition of Canaiolo (10%) and Merlot (10%)
Production technique: The grapes destined to Chianti Classico are harvested exclusively by hand, with meticulous selection of the healthiest, ripest grapes. Vinification takes place in observance of tradition, with prolonged, temperature-controlled maceration of the skins. After fermentation has been completed, the wine obtained is left to age in small oak barrels for about ten months, with a further ageing period of five months in the bottle.

-FLAVOUR: deep, harmonious flavour, fruity, with hints of delicate tannins.
Accompaniments: It is particularly well suited to serving with roast or stewed game, red meat and mature cheeses.
