Intense ruby color with dark garnet nuances. On the nose ripe red and black fruit, cherry and blackberry, touches of spice and vanilla. The sip is surprisingly ready compared to past vintages, very smooth and pleasant in freshness, well-balanced acidity and good tannic structure. Dry finish, savoury with a pleasant persistence.

Production Notes

The grapes are selected directly in the vineyard, then, once they arrive in the cellar, we have a double sorting, bunches first and grape later. The vinification takes place in raw concrete tanks filled by gravity: the grapes are gently placed in the tank, without using mechanical pumps that could damage the integrity of the grape. This step is essential to manage the “whole grape” winemaking, such as to affect the entire architectural design of the winery and the purchase of sorting machinery. Once fermentation has started, pumping over and delestage are carried out during the entire period the tank, up to 30 days. A vertical press is used for racking and pressing. 12-month of aging in a cement tank and large Slavonian oak barrel. Bottle aging follows for 18 months.

Producer Information

Located in the heart of the ancient Chianti Classico region, in Panzano in Chianti, one hour's drive from Florence, Tenuta Casenuove covers 105 hectares spread over a succession of hills and valleys. There are 28 hectares under vine (in organic conversion), the rest of the estate largely laid to forest and olive groves. Planted high above the Pesa river at altitudes of 370 to 490 metres, in soils rich in the famed local galestro, a rocky, schistous clay terrain. It is here that winery director Alessandro Fonseca, cellar master Maria Sole Zoli and young winemaker Cosimo Casini are crafting some of the most exciting new wines in Chianti Classico.
