Cetamura Chianti 750ml - 12024
This Sangiovese-based Chianti Classico is exactly what youre looking for in a Chianti. This wine, with ICEA organic certification from 2003, is the result of absolutely natural production methods using hand-picked organically grown Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes from the vineyards at Badia a Coltibuono. It is considered to be one of the most representative wines of the Chianti Classico appellation. Vintage notes: After a mild winter and an early bud-break the summer was variable, and wetter than most of the recent seasons. The long-term use of organic practices helped to achieve perfect maturation and to preserve the health of the grapes. Manual sorting of the grapes at the winery was employed to ensure optimal quality. Harvest period: 25th September - 7th October Tasting Notes: The color is bright ruby, the nose unveils layers of iris, violet, tobacco, black pepper and marasca cherry. The taste is well balanced, tightly knit with supple tannins, mineral notes, a mouth cleansing fresh acidity. Warm and persistent.
