Chianti Classico with a clearly classic look; intense but vibrant ruby red color.
Intense and fruity nose impact, with delicate fresh fruit notes of plump prunes and orange rind that are followed by a more spicy note of fresh grass.
On the palate, a noteworthy composition is immediately revealed, full and round and yet clean and dry in the mouth with elegant but strong tannins to sustain the fruity notes of wild berries and plums and prunes. Beautifully persistent.
