CHIANTI CLASSICO D.O.C.G. From the hills of Trasqua in the heart of Tuscany, a timeless tradition, redolent of ancient wisdom, finds expression in a wine of intense aromas, lightly spiced and pleasing to the refined palate.
The 2015 was an excellent vintage. The summer weather was very dry. This showed large variations in temperature between day and night that allowed excellent ripeness of the grapes. Achieving a good presence of sugar. A year that saw the best aromatic sangiovese expression.
