Chianti Classico is a wine very expressive of its region and roots, the result of centuries of tradition. Tenuta Cappellina’s work in the vineyards and careful selection results in softer, easier drinking wines, more suited to the current consumer taste.
The blend for the exceptional 2019 could not be more traditional – 95% Sangiovese with 5% of the native variety Canaiolo giving it the perfect fresh element. It has 18-24 months in Slavonian oak casks – very fashionable in Piedmonte as the woods tight grain and large barrel size imparts lower oak aromatics, more subtle flavours and softer tannins.
An open bouquet and balanced, smooth yet complex wine with concentrated fruit and a silky long finish with understated oak charter and integrated tannins.
Grape(s): Cannaiolo, Sangiovese
