Made from 100% Sangiovese, harvested from a small 2.2ha plot, the vines are quite densely planted on a heavy clay soil and yields are very low. These premium grapes are fermented in small stainless steel vats prior to maturation for about a year and a half in new French barriques; the wine is cellared for 8 months in bottle before release, only about 8000 bottles are made. Ruby-red, with brick red tones; the nose shows mulberry and ripe red fruits, violet and sweet spice; the palate is extremely elegant, with integrated tannins and notes of vanilla oak on the finish.
This excellent red wine from Vicchiomaggio is crafted in the Chianti area of Toscana. The wine is one of a growing number in our list that can be enjoyed by vegan drinkers. Rich and intense flavours that are perfect for full-flavoured beef and pasta dishes.
