Chianti Classico D.O.C.G. Gran Selezione Vigna il Corno
This wine is made from the finest Sangiovese grapes from a single vineyard located in the area known as “Il Corno”
Vinification and ageing
The freshly picked grapes are crushed and destemmed before undergoing fermentation in temperature-controlled steel tanks with a capacity of 50 hl. This is followed by maceration of the grapes on skins for about four weeks. Malolactic fermentation is then carried out in new 5 hl tonneaux, where the wine spends about five months on the fine lees. Ageing continues in the same tonneaux for a further 20 months. After bottling, the wine undergoes at least 12 months’ bottle ageing.
Colour: Transparent ruby with garnet highlights
Bouquet: Intense, with notes of red berries and scents of spices and vanilla
Palate: Persistent and balanced, with a fresh and pleasantly savoury finish. The tannic structure is well integrated and complex.
Approximately 14.5% vol.
Perfect with main courses featuring red meats, game or braised meats. Worth trying in combination with hard, very mature cheeses.Download the technical datasheet
