This is a ‘geographicaly protected’ Classic Chianti traditional tasting wine. It is produced with 100% Sangiovese grapes and refined in big oak barrels, where the eccentricity of the grapes are free to mature and make this wine a perfect match with many authentic dishes of the traditional Tuscan cuisine.
Ruby red coloured, red berries scented, it shows a typical taste of medium consistency.

The fruity smell and the solid, yet still elegant and soft structure, is the accent of this wine and has a rich ruby red colour, with an intense and fruity smell, rich and persistent in taste.
sweets, biscuits and cheese
In Tuscany “Vin Santo” is the ‘welcome wine’ par excellence: it is in fact offered to the guests between meals, but it can also be served as a table wine together with desserts or herbed cheese.
This wine is traditionally made with Chianti Malvasia and Trebbiano grapes, left to wither for about three months. After the pressing, the must that comes out is put to ferment in small 100ls oak barrels called “caratelli”, where it remains for four years.
This wine has a golden yellow colour with amber reflections, a smell typically reminiscent of honey and dried fruit, hazelnut in particular. The taste is quite sweet and supported by a good acidity.
