Classic interpretation of one of the most historical Italian appellations, Chianti Classico Le Fioraie is made with grapes from the Le Fioraie area, one of the most important crus in the municipality of Castellina in Chianti. Vinification takes place in steel. This is followed by a period of about six months in vitrified concrete tanks. The wine matures in 25 HL French oak casks for a further 12 months. It has a characteristic ruby colour, with evident notes of rose, violet, marasca cherry and white pepper in the nose. It retains its freshness in the mouth and is distinguished by a good structure and persistence.
