Ruby red in color. At the beginning you can perceive a strong fresh red fruit, such as currants, strawberries and cherries. The violet is clearly recognizable on the palate. Pleasant, fruity wine, supported by the typical acidity of Sangiovese and characterized by long and elegant tannins.If drunk young it is the perfect combination with cured meats and medium-sized cheeses, grilled white meats. An ideal wine also as an accompaniment to any meal.

A firm, linear red, marked by complex aromas and flavors of cherry, strawberry, fresh mushroom, tobacco and menthol, with earth, iron and tobacco accents on the long finish. This is balanced and should age nicely over the next decade or two. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2024 through 2035. 2,250 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.

The 2019 Chianti Classico is dark, fleshy and super-expressive. Succulent dark cherry, plum, new leather, licorice and menthol all meld together. Soft, plush contours wrap it all together. This exuberant, plush Chianti Classico goes down easy.

The 2019 Chianti Classico is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot aged in different barrel sizes. An interesting fun fact is that some of the oak used is local. The Progetto Foresta seeks to replant forests with Tuscan oak, and that wood is used to make some of these barrels. This organic wine offers a rather transparent interpretation of Sangiovese with a medium-dark appearance and aromas of wild berry fruit, crushed flower, spice and earth. Production is 27,000 bottles.
