This is the basic wine of the Fattoria, yet our research of the highest quality applied to all our vineyards, not only the most suited ones. This Chianti lines up its quality level to the Riserva and single vineyard wines. It is made from Sangiovese and Colorino. The fermentation takes place with maceration on the skins for about 20 days, followed by 8 months of barrel aging in French oak. The wine has a deep ruby red color and intense bouquet of black cherry and violet aromas and flavors. It is full and round on the palate with excellent tannic structure and a round harmonious finish.

Wine SpectatorThe flavors of blueberry and raspberry are appealing in this taut and focused red, with a hint of black pepper and firm but ripe tannins underneath. Best from 2017 through 2024. 30,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastBright and earthy, this informal red offers aromas of dark-skinned berry, leafy underbrush, tilled soil and a whiff of clove that carry over to the easy-drinking palate. Racy acidity and mild, fleeting tannins provide the easygoing framework.
