Chianti Classico embodies the intensity and freshness of the territory. The austere elegance of Sangiovese is enhanced by the addition of variable percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
The result is a wine, which is fresh, but also intense, fruity, full bodied and balanced. It has a good acidity and a lingering taste.
The average production is 25,000 - 40,000 bottles.
Black cherry, liquorice, blackcurrant, thyme and cinnamon. It’s fleshy and savoury, but packed with ripe dark fruit, and some suede leather, and also, a firm suede-like character to the tannin. Almost a blueberry flavour in here too, and tastes like Cabernet makes itself pretty well known, then chamomile perfume and pepper trails on a pretty long and firm finish. It’s kind of polished and modern in feel, but still tastes distinctly Tuscan.
