Chioccioli Chianti Classico is a blend of 85% Sangiovese , 5 % Merlot , 5 % Syrah and 5 % Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes are grown on the Estate with vineyards, located in the most suitable production areas for Chianti Classico.- Gaiole in Chianti and Quercegrossa.
The grapes are harvested in small boxes, cooled overnight and then worked on the double sorting table.The fermentation takes place in small stainless steel tanks and conical vats.
After a long maceration on the skins the wine is poured directly into French oak barrels where the malolactic fermentation takes place. It rests in barriques “sur lies” for 14 months, and then undergoes a further period in bottle before release.
Bags of charcter here with intense fruity, floral and spicy notes, well balanced with polished tannins and fresh acidity. Morello cherry and rich spice on the palate lead through to a long finish, top quality Chianti.
