Story of the Wine:
This estate has a high % of old sangiovese vines, which give the wines an excellent structure. The 22ha of vineyards are on the western edge of the Chianti Classico district and part of a larger estate of about 309ha, most of which is woodland. This wine is developing the growing trend in the region for optimising the local grapes, rather than using French imports, and then using modern vinification and ageing methods to produce the best wine possible.
Grape(s): 90% Sangiovese 10% Canaiolo
Area: From the Castello della Paneretta vin
eyards between the villages of Barberino and Castellina.
Tuscany, home of Italy’s most famous wine where the original and best area is called Classico and lies between Florence and Siena. The dry, full flavoured Sangiovese grape make a wine with considerable depth and the Riserva wines are the top of the tree. Pronounced sweet red fruits: strawberry jam, vanilla, pretty perfume and touches of gravelly mineral character. Vibrant acidity and a long, long length.
