About

Product Description:

"Aziano is a Tuscan wine which perfectly merges the traditional values of the Chianti Classico territory with the advantages of modern winemaking technology. The grapes used for the production of Aziano are cultivated in the heart of the Chianti Classico area. Its character and fragrant aromas are enhanced through a temperature-controlled fermentation process in stainless steel tanks and a traditional ageing in large Slovenian and French oak barrels. The tower depicted on Aziano's label was a typical sight in the middle Ages, when warring Florentine and Sienese noblemen fought to expand their fiefdoms. Many of these towers have toppled in the course of history, but many are still standing today and are a traditional trait of the Tuscan landscape - just as the Chianti Classico is a landmark in Tuscany's enogastronomic culture." -Winery
