These grapes are organically grown and dry farmed on soils of rocky, medium clay at Venturi Family Vineyards in Calpella, California. It is the dry farming that brings intensity to this beautiful wine.
The main grape in Chianti Classico is Sangiovese. Our 100% Sangiovese has the appearance, aromas and flavors of Chianti Classico. It is a clear red wine, reddish in color, not purple, of medium intensity. On the nose one notes cherry, strawberries with raspberry overtones. At the mid-palate these same fruit flavors are intensified along with flavors of earth and leather. It is dry and with a crispness that comes from a good amount of acidity all of which makes it an excellent choice to accompany lighter meals such as roast chicken, pork loin, cheese and pastas. The finish is quite pleasant.
Varietal: 100% Sangiovese
