Full ruby red, wide, well expressed, with red fruit and floral aromas. It expresses elegant tannins supported by a persistent and balanced finish.
"Wonderful perfumes of chocolate, berry and raspberry follow through to a full-bodied palate, with firm tannins and a long, refreshing aftertaste."
- Wine Spectator
One of the first wine regions anywhere to be officially recognized and delimited, Chianti Classico is today what was originally defined simply as Chianti. Already identified by the early 18th century as a superior zone, the official name of Chianti was proclaimed upon the area surrounding the townships of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole, just north of Siena, by Cosimo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany in an official decree in 1716.
