chianti classico DOCG 2014


 

As often happens in Val delle Corti in difficult and less generous years, the outcoming wines have an extra elegant structure. A rainy year with cool temperatures caused us meticolous and extraordinary work. Repeated selections during the harvest with an impressive result:  Silky and polished Sangiovese with wild berry aromas followed by blanched almond, blue flower and mild garden herb underline the delicate and nuanced side of the mighty sangiovese. Thin, intact, along with character and amazing personality, it is a rare treat to drink it.
