VALIANO CHIANTI CLASSICO
95% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot
The altitude varies from 200 to 300 a.s.l., gently rolling hills offering north-easterly exposure. The soil is rich in lime and fragmented stone that ensures great natural drainage. Significant excursions between day and night guarantee the production of healthy and particularly aromatic grapes.
Sangiovese and Merlot grapes from the estate vineyards are hand harvested in mid October, when they have ripened to perfection. The grape stalks are removed and the grapes undergo soft pressing before being vinified using the traditional method on the skins. Temperature-controlled maceration takes place in stainless steel tanks, with frequent pumping over every day to obtain better extraction of colour, polyphenols, complexity and soft tannins.
9 months in big wooden barrels.
Gorgeous aromas of violets, blackberries and dark cherries nose. Full and beautifully etched on the palate, with excellent depth and structure. The ripe, substantial tannins are buried in fruit on the finish.
Ideal with red meat and cheeses.
Enjoy at 18 °C
