More information

Dry and very soft on the palate, appealing full-bodied with velvety tannins, fruity and elegant. Long and tasteful finish.

Vinification of the Chianti Superiore DOCG of Santa Cristina

The Sangiovese grapes for this Chianti Superiore were harvested in the first half of September. Vinification took place in two parts. Some of the grapes were macerated for 7 to 8 days at a maximum of 25°C in order to extract the softest possible tannins and preserve the fruity aromas of the grapes. The greater part of the grapes harvested were macerated for 10 to 12 days at 30°C and at the same time gently poured over the skin to increase the flavour complexity. Malolactic fermentation and ageing of this Chianti Superiore take place partly in stainless steel tanks, partly in oak barrels, only in December, more than a year after the harvest, the bottling takes place in bottles, which are sold after a further rest period.
