Fontodi Chianti Classico DOCG

2014

In a Nutshell

Stunning and well awarded Chianti from a top producer.

Tasting Notes

The wine is deep ruby red in colour, with perfumes of sour cherry and plums leading to notes of leather and tobacco. It has great depth of flavour, with juicy fruit and supple tannins, giving way to a silky-smooth texture. It has a great structure and finishes with a fine mineral note.

Production Notes

Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for two weeks, during which time the cap was punched down twice a day. The wine was then racked into 225 litre French oak barriques (Troncais and Allier) where it remained for 24 months before bottling. The wine was matured in bottle for six months before release.
