chianti classico DOCG


 

This wine represents both the specific Radda terroir and the basic principle leading our commit-ment as winegrowers: sustainable development. It is made exclusively from Sangiovese (95%) and Canaiolo (5%) grapes. Chianti Classico Val delle Corti encapsulates the principal features of a “classic” Chianti Classico, in the best sense of the term: fresh, harmonious fruit on the nose – black cherries, wild berries, violets and juniper – bright ruby red colour, good concentrated texture, lovely acidity and, above all, an elegant and extremely delicious flavour. Chianti-grown Sangiovese grapes at their best. The years of bottle-ageing mature the wine further.
