Tenuta Casenuove Chianti Classico 2017

ITRCAS02

Tasting Note

Located at Panzano in Chianti, in Tuscany, an hour’s drive from Florence, Tenuta Casenuove covers an area of 105 hectares, spread overa succession of hills and valleys. This little-known part of Tuscany is an area of steep, wild terrain, beloved of cycle tourists and ramblers. Its numerous streams, its forests and its vines form a protected bucolic environment

A blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. After harvest the grapes are sorted extensively and then fermented in concrete tanks, with regular pump overs and racking. After aging for 12 months in a mix of large Slavonian oak cask and concrete tanks, the wine is bottled and matured for a further 6 months before release.

A balanced wine with an inviting, fresh acidity, this Chianti Classico is characterized by black fruit notes, ripe tannins and a touch of savouriness. The finish is dry and savoury with a pleasant persistence.
