IL CAMPITELLO RISERVA Chianti Classico D.O.C.G. - Certified organic
The wine is garnet-red colored. Intense spicy and red fruity notes on the nose. One is immediately impressed by the wine’s power and strength. The marly and clayey soil lends the wine remarkable savouriness and persistence. The tertiary notes, of aromatic herbs blended with Spanish broom and fennel, are typical of the Chianti Classico zone. High acidity, due to the winery’s altitude, which ensures ageing potential. The fine but firm tannins make this wine the perfect pair with traditional Tuscan meat-based dishes, such as game.
