Chianti Colli Senesi docg
This is a lively, dry Chianti, with an intense ruby red colour typical of Sangiovese grapes from Terre di Nano, which has been mellowed by the addition of some Merlot. A brief time in wood and in the bottle completes the maturation of this wine which has gentle tannins and which exudes softness in taste.
