Fratelli Chianti 2017
The color is ruby red and the sweetly perfumed nose leads to an intense, yet perfectly balanced palate showing lovely red and black fruit. The flavor is smooth, with good acidity. The tannins are supple and well-integrated and the finish is long and harmonious.
This wine comes from the Chianti production zone situated in the provinces of Florence and Siena. The area covers a stretch of gently undulating hills which have always been well-situated for growing grapes. The vineyards are planted with low yield clones to get the best quality grapes. Picked by hand, the grapes are vinified following the traditional method, with twelve days maceration under controlled temperature. The result is a full- bodied wine that keeps its characteristic fruity aroma for a long period of time. After the first fermentation, the wine is stored in stainless steel tanks where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and a minimum of eight months aging.
Vino dei Fratelli Chianti is a perfect accompaniment to Tuscan cuisine, from sausage products to grilled meats and ripe cheeses.
