Altadonna Chianti Classico
PRODUCER: Sons of one of the most esteemed and awarded Oenologists and Agronomists in the world, Niccolò and Enrico dedicated their passion in the research and interpretation of the territory to which they have been connected since childhood. Raised in Greve in Chianti, their project was born from the desire of two brothers of rooting in their land to create with their own hands a product that was the purest expression of the Tuscan terroir. Under the careful guidance of their father, Niccolò and Enrico follow and realise first hand all the production phases, from the vineyard up to the cellar, bringing inside the bottle the craftsmanship of a superb product, the expression of a terroir vocated to excellence.
WINEMAKING: It is obtained from the blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot. The grapes are collected in small boxes, cooled overnight and then checked on a double sorting table. Fermentation takes place in small steel tanks and in egg-shaped amphoras of terracotta.
After maceration on the skins, the wine is decanted into a tank where malolactic fermentation takes place. It then rises in French fine-grained oak barriques “sur lies” for 12 months. After bottling, it refines glass before being placed on the market.
TASTING NOTES: This wine is fresh, fruity, floral wine with small spicy notes. Its aromas are complex, fine, structured with notes of red and black fruits combined with fresh and delicate spices. The taste is full, wide and full-bodied, with pleasant tannins. Balanced, dense and sweet with a fresh acidity. Nice juicy and fresh smoothness.
