CHIANTI DOCG 2015

One of the most famous and renowned wines, Chianti DOCG is a quintessential symbol of Tuscany and of “Made in Italy” products in the world. Born in the heart of Tuscany, its production is regulated by strict laws that protect its quality standards. Obtained mainly from Sangiovese grapes, it has a red color, which tends to turn into garnet red with aging.
The taste is balanced, intense and persistent; it presents floral and fruity notes of cherry, spicy hints, and scent of violet and iris.
It tastes great with grilled white and red meats, but it is also a good with starters and first courses.
