CHIANTI CLASSICO
D.O.C.G.

Crystal-clear, pale red-colored. The nose offers intense notes of violet, green pepper and raspberry. The strong minerality on the palate blends wonderfully with the freshness given by the calcareous, stony and marly soil. Long-lasting, full-bodied and structured, but enjoyable and not overwhelming on the palate, owing to the silky and soft tannins that bring out the wine’s elegance.
