Description

This label is dedicated to Bettino Ricasoli who, in 1872, created the formula for the production of Chianti. President of the Council of united Italy in 1861 and 1866, he was also founder of the newspaper "La Nazione", researcher in agriculture, and "father" of the first production rules (disciplinare) of Chianti wine. By producing this wine, we have tried to interpret his will, working on those elements that remind us the most of the style of his time.

Ageing: 18 months in big casks and at least three/six months in the bottle. Unfiltered wine.
Alcohol: 13%

Tasting notes

Intense hints of cherry jam as well as balsamic and spicy notes. In the mouth is elegant, long and mineral, with velvety tannins. Pleasant finish with nice acidity, which reflects the characteristics of the territory.
