Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG “I’ Terzo” 14%
This organic Chianti is fruity and fresh with great varietal characters. Intense garnet red in colour. Notes of liquorice and fruits of the forest. Soft yet full bodied on the palate with well balanced tannins and a long, pleasant finish.
Approachable fruit-forward but structured Chianti from this beautiful family-owned estate, just east of Florence.
Chianti Colli Senesi is perhaps Chianti's most significant subzone, located on the hills surrounding Siena in the southern part of the Chianti region. The area overlaps some of Tuscany's most famous wine names – Montalcino, Montepulciano and San Gimignano.
Harvested by hand, followed by further selection of the grapes in the cellar. Cold maceration to improve the extraction of the primary aromas. Fermentation in small cement tanks at a controlled temperature. Aged in cement tanks and then for 8 months in the bottle.
The classic pairing combination is with Tuscan sliced meats, but fits perfectly with all Tuscan dishes such as roasts, grilled meats and cheeses
