Vinification Details: The grapes are firstly crushed which allows the must to extract colour and tannin from the skins. Fermentation then occurs at temperatures between 22 - 25 degree , during which the skins are racked and returned to the liquid several times to extract flavour, structure and stability. The wine then undergoes malolactic fermentation, before being filtered and fined, and finally bottled.
History: The Chianti region is in Tuscany. All wines from this region must be made with a minimum of 80% Sangiovese, to protect the region's identity and quality. These wines are highly regarded across the world, and produces wines to rival the finest in the world.
