"Le Cinciole's 2012 Chianti Classico is gorgeous. Gracious and lifted in the glass, the 2012 is not a huge wine, but rather a Chianti Classico built on finesse. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, cinnamon and mint add nuance on the lifted, aromatic finish. The 2012 is pure class."

Product Description:

"100% Sangiovese. The grapes are harvested by hand and carefully selected. After destemming they are delicately crushed and collected in cement vats for 10-15 days. During the natural alcoholic fermentation the must is controlled continuously so that the temperature does not exceed 30° Celsius. After the alcoholic fermentation the wine is racked into other vats for the malolactic fermentation that generally is concluded by the end of December. The wine is racked again into medium capacity barrels (20 hectoliters) where it is refined for 12 months. Bottling usually takes place in March." -Importer
