Chianti DOCG Maiano 2020, Tenuta Maiano
Chianti is going through something of a renaissance at the moment - and this is the DOCG at its best.
A rare find and a completely authentic, joyous, incarnation of this Italian Classic red.
"This is Chianti at its best."
"Takes me back to holidays in Italy. Enjoyed with pasta."
This organic vineyard is at altitude in the Tuscan hills using all of the 4 classic Chianti grapes, including the traditional use of white grapes which provide the necessary acidity and structure to the wine, without the need of additives. Something uncommon in most modern Chianti!
Pomegranate and ruby red with an intense, persistent nose characterised by hints of violet and rich black and red cherries. Balanced, well-structured, good tannins and satisfying mouth feel.
