This organic Chianti spends little time in oak, unlike many of its Tuscan siblings. This gives the Sangiovese grape the chance to express its pure red cherry and plum character and a delicate spiced finish. Smooth, ripe and fresh this will accompany a Pasta al Ragù just perfectly. Read More
This organic Chianti spends little time in oak, unlike many of its Tuscan siblings. This gives the Sangiovese grape the chance to express its pure red cherry and plum character and a delicate spiced finish. Smooth, ripe and fresh this will accompany a Pasta al Ragù just perfectly.
The Sangiovese grapes are hand harvested, treating them gently and with care. All natural, no sulphites are used in the production of this wine and native yeasts are used for fermentation. Once the wine has been through fermentation, 30% of it is put in to 300 litre American oak Tonneaux to mature for a period of 4 months. The wine is then given a further 3 months to refine in bottle before release.
The Salcheto winery covers 21 hectares of hilly Tuscan land and it surrounds the Salcheto stream that runs through the heart of Tuscany’s Montepulciano town. The first estate in Italy to be fully self-sustainable, Salcheto reflects the epitome of environmental efficiency – and, unsurprisingly, its wines embody a similar ethos of innovation and natural process. Thirty years on from its founding, and almost twenty-five since its takeover by Michele Manelli in 1997, the Salcheto winery can today be considered an eco-pioneer in the wine world. Alongside its primary goal to create terroir-focused, Sangiovese-oriented wines focused on drinkability and aromatic clarity, Salcheto is absolutely committed to utilising a cellar that is considered an exemplary model of sustainable technological innovation, while incorporating the lightest and most ecological bottling solution and boxing on the market, all to keep their carbon footprint as low as possible.
