Uggiano Chianti Colli Fiorentini DOCG

2018

In a Nutshell

A fresh and approachable style of Chianti from Uggiano's estate in the hills south of Florence - aged for 6 months in large oak casks.

Tasting Notes

Cherry and bramble fruit aromas with spicy, lightly oaky notes and a touch of black pepper. Impressive concentration of ripe cherry and plum fruit on the palate with savoury notes, supple tannins and vibrant acidity giving a wine of real depth and interest.

Production Notes

After crushing the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks using selected yeasts. Fermentation is at controlled temperature (26-28°C) with the must pumped over the skins twice a day to extract colour and tannins. After 10-15 days the wine is racked to large 30/60hl oak casks for 6-8 months' maturation. Storage in stainless steel tanks until bottling, with a further 6-8 months before release
