Chianti Classico DOCG (0.75 lt)

Produced with Sangiovese and a small addition of Merlot, this Chianti Classico is aged almost entirely in steel.

In the glass it is a lively ruby red, with a fruity bouquet of red fruits and cherries that blend perfectly with hints of vanilla and iris. It is harmonious and well structured, savoury and moderately tannic.
