Chianti Classico Docg

Chianti Classico wine is the productive base of the Villa le Corti estate. The vineyards are located in the township of San Cascinao in Pesa Valley, which is the northernmost zone of Chianti Classico production, just 15 km south of Florence. The south-facing vineyards, planted entirely on hills, are at 220-300 m above sea level. The soil has an important skeletal structure with prevalent white river pebbles alternating with brown clay. The vines are low spur-trained cordons in order to benefit from the warmth of the earth. Le Corti is the classic “Vintage” Chianti of the winery, and it is produced with Sangiovese grapes and a small percentage of Colorino.

The wine represents a priceless heritage for the winery, interpreting the elegance of Chianti Classico with a candid and sincere personality.

Tasting and pairing notes: 
Intense ruby red in color, the wine has a brilliant and silky profile, almost thirst-quenching with its traces of raspberry, violet, lavender, and forest roses. The lightly spicy nose is inviting, an anticipation of a lively flavor and texture with a genteel note of rhubarb, its precise tannins marked by the sensation of just-harvested crunchy, red plums, and a finish that pushes through a dynamic progression of savoriness. Food pairings: Ideal with roast pork, mixed boiled meats, wild fowl, grilled white meat, and medium-aged cheeses.
