Chianti Volpaio

Year 2011


A grand finale for a docg Chianti.

Deep ruby coloured appearance with purple hues. It has bewitching scents on the nose, characteristic of cherries, alcohol-preserved fruit, wild berries and violets. It opens gradually with enveloping aromas on the palate, balanced by soft tannins and a certain freshness. With a wonderful finish.

Wine-making techniques

The freshly picked grapes are de-stemmed and gently pressed, then introduced in stainless steel tanks where we proceeded with the vinification phase of the red grapes by macerating the skins for 15-18 days, with a careful management of the extraction process by means of pumping and Délestage at temperatures not exceeding 30°C. Sometimes, a partial subtraction of the liquid is carried out in order to optimise the extraction of the colouring substances and tannins. Once the alcoholic fermentation is completed, the wine is placed in stainless steel tanks for 12-15 months, where the malolactic fermentation also takes place. The wine is then bottled, where it undergoes a further refinement before being introduced to the market.
