Every 15 days the wine in the cellar is tasted to check the individual progress.
Dark ruby red color with intense red berry aromas. An incredibly balanced Chianti that harnesses the strength of Sangiovese, reigns in abrasive tannins for a restrained and malleable palate, remarkable complexity, and broad, soft finish. The palate is full with flavors of plum jam, red cherries and red berries, beech, and hints of cedar and anise. Pair this gorgeous Chianti with a grilled rib-eye, lamb, or a hearty ragu pasta.
