"Made with Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo and 5% Colorino, this opens with aromas of dark berry, grilled herb, menthol and a whiff of leather. The savory palate doles out juicy cherry, black raspberry, licorice, clove and mocha. Firm but polished tannins and fresh acidity hold it all together. Drink through 2018."
"Their Chianti Classico comes from the high altitude vineyards around Gaiole, and is the best expression of "Galestro" type soil. Light in color, but medium to full bodied on the palate, these are Chianti's of extraordinary elegance. Galestro is compressed clay, which splits easy and reveals on its inside colorfully mineral layers on which the roots of the grapevine easily feed. It's these minerals that gives the Galestro grown sangiovese incredible richness and finesse." - Winemaker Notes
