|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
Approximately 250 meters above sea level, the terroir is ideally suited for the vine. The Chianti Classico is made from Sangiovese and other complementary grapes. Traditional red wine vinification is used and during fermentation extra care is taken with precise pumpings over (remontage) and temperature control. The wine is aged in oak casks and barriques for approximately 9 months. From the vineyards to the cellar, the production system for this wine is carefully monitored; Villa Cerna Chianti Classico is an expression of its region and possesses an easily dentifiable clean character. Clear and vivid ruby in color. An intense floral bouquet, with violet and iris aromas the most prevalent.
