About the wine

Quintessential Tuscan red wine full of spicy red berry and black cherry notes accompanied by intense earthy character. Tobacco, spice and bundles of fresh fruit give this superb Chianti so much life in the glass. From historical producer Principe Corsini who have pivoted towards organic, minimal intervention wine-making.

Made from 95% Sangiovese and a small amount of Colorino. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for around 14 days. The wine spends 20 months in French oak cask and partly tonneaux also and is then left to further mature once bottled for 6 months before release.

About the wine

Enjoy with slow cooked meats, game and strong dark sauces. Mushrooms and truffles or aged hard cheeses.
