La Villa 'Pagolo' Chianti Classico 2019
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
The name of the wine commemorates the birth of our first child and our new vineyard. As our family and our estate both continue to grow, we look forward to the continued appreciation of this small production wine, so representative of our story at Podere La Villa. After the first vilification the wine ages for 9/12 months in French barrels in the 3rd and 4th passages. Final refinement in glass is fundamental to the wine’s character. Wine is made from a blend of mainly Sangiovese and a small percentage of Merlot.
On the nose, intense notes of ripe red fruit, cherries, currants, and raspberries lead over to delicate floral scents of dog rose, violets, and lavender. Its bouquet is completed by typical sanguine sensations together with pleasant spicy hints of tobacco, cinnamon, and cloves with a sweet note of milk chocolate. Its palate is well-balanced with lively, silky tannins that impart freshness and sustain a savory, persistent finish.
