Made from Sangiovese grapes, with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, from grapes grown in the vineyards of Farnetella, in the commune of Sinalunga, in the Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG zone. The vineyards are sited on a broad, well-exposed hill at elevations ranging between 400-470 metres. The soils are layered sand and silt, with some clay, and larger presences of rock and limestone, mostly galestro.
Denomination: Chianti Colli Senesi Riserva Docg
Varietal: Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet.
Ageing: After 12-16 months’ maturation the wine is then bottled and given an additional 4-6 months’ bottle ageing.
Intense ruby red with slight purplish highlights. Lively, variegated aromas, predominantly blueberry, anise, and Mediterranean scrub, with hints of earthy mineral and an appealing note of toasty oak in the background. Very approachable in the mouth, showing relaxed tannins, fine acidity, and firm structure. The finish is lengthy and very appealing, with aromatic hints of wild cherry and subtle vanilla.
