Chioccioli Chianti Classico DOCG 2016
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: The estate releases a single Chianti Classico from a selection of the cellar’s finest sangiovese and other traditional native grapes. A small proportion of wine from sangiovese only is bottled as Chianti Classico Riserva, which receives longer maturation in oak and ageing in glass.
TASTING NOTES: This excellent Chianti Classico displays ripe, warm and autumnal aromas with plenty of spicy blackcurrant and black cherry fruit. The palate is layered and complex, combining herbs, tea leaves and a bitter chocolate quality. Full, rich and concentrate, this Chianti is wonderfully appealing with a firm tannic backbone.
