Cherry and violet aromas, persistent and rounded flavors of spices and mushroom. Great structure with elegant finesse.

Located north of the village of Greve in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, the Nozzole estate covers a striking, rugged, mountainous area of about 1,000 acres at 300 meters in elevation. To obtain concentration and complexity in the wine, yields are kept low. The grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed, and crushed. Fermentation is initiated on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, followed by a maceration period to draw out color and tannins. The wine is racked into stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation before aging in oak vats and bottles before release. The wine is bottled on the estate.

Rich and aromatic on the nose with sour cherries, light hazelnuts, and dried fruit. Full-bodied and very rich with lots of fruit and layers of chewy tannins. Flavorful finish.

Ripe and silky, this red reveals cherry, raspberry, floral, and woodsy underbrush aromas and flavors. Firm and fluid, with a lingering, juicy finish.
