Tasting Notes

This is a light Chianti DOCG has lots of bright red currant and herbal notes. Lively acidity and a bit rustic in style; would be great with a plate of pasta with crushed tomatoes and basil and a good drizzle of freshly pressed extra virgin olive oil.

Method

From the Sienese hills, in the Rapolano thermal area in the province of Siena.  90% Sangiovese, 10% Ciliegiolo.  Fermented in stainless steel and matured in oak barrels for a minimum of 4 months before a light filtration, bottling and a further 3 months ageing before release.  

Our Thoughts

Fattoria di Scannano Rocca di Castagnoli DOCG Chianti is classic blend of Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo. Besides the really long name it has classic Chianti aromas of cherry, leather and spice. The palate reveals more savoury notes, refreshing acidity and bright fruit.
