Rocca delle Macie Sant'Alfonso Chianti Classico 2017 DOCG

Production Technique

Chianti Classico Tenuta Sant’Alfonso is fermented using the most advanced techniques to preserve the grapes’ natural concentration, and is subsequently transferred to French oak barrels with a capacity of 35 hectoliters, where it ages for around one year. Follows a period in the bottle before being released.

Wine description

Color: intense ruby red. Bouquet: intense and rich nose, with a pronounced sensation of ripe red fruit and spices. Taste: warm, smooth and with a good structure. Great smoothness with a good balance of tannins.

Winemaker’s recommendations

Although not classed as a Riserva, with its immensely refined organoleptic qualities, generous body and extensive ageability, it has the characteristics to be a great companion of full flavored entrees such as roasts and game. Stored properly it can age for 5/6 years. Serve at 18/20 °C. ABV: 13,5%
