Villa Calcinaia Chianti Classico 2009


SKU 24203


The select grapes of the traditional red Chianti variety are hand-picked from the vineyards on the estate between mid-September and the beginning of October, and fermented in stainless-steel tanks for the production of Chianti Classico. The wine is partly aged in 30 hectolitre oak-casks, in French oak barrels of 225 liters and 500 liters. The colour of the wine is ruby-red with garnet shadings, a fruity flavour with traces of cherry and ripe fruit. At the taste, the wine appears to be of medium structure, typically well-balanced, well-flavoured and persistent in its aftertaste. This wine is best combined with hearty sauces, pasta, roasts and game.
