2017 CHIANTI D.O.C.G.
The history of Chianti is as old as the Tuscany region itself, monks are believed to be the first producers of the wine in the early 12th century. Chianti wine has since evolved & developed over the centuries. Our wine maker Luca Nesi continues to improve and refine its taste while maintaining its unique characteristics.
A true Tuscan, crafted from organically farmed Sangiovese Piccolo grapes, enhanced with a blend of organic Cabernet Sauvignon & Colorino grapes.
Deep ruby color, ripe black & red cherry & black plum. Vanilla bean, purple iris & violet notes. Clean, well-structured with splendid tannins. Fruit forward with bright acidity & black pepper notes. Savory velvety finish.
Food & Wine:
Serve with T-bone & ribeye steaks. Rosemary rubbed chicken, grilled pork loin. Roasted vegetables & tomato-based dishes.
Serve at 65 - 70°F.
“We opened our bottle of Chianti 20 minutes before drinking it, and upon pouring, noticed its beautifully vivid, ruby red color. The taste is dry, fruity and harmonious, it became velvetier as we drank it. We paired it first with sliced prosciutto and melon followed by lightly barbecued poultry.
Villa Graziella Chianti wine smells and tastes like Italy. Molto buono!”
