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: 
The soul of the Villa Le Corti, condensed in the expression of the most authentic character of the San Casciano Val di Pesa hills in Chianti Classico, with Sangiovese and its sparring partners Colorino and Canaiolo. Intense ruby red, for a wine that reveals character, clarity and precision, with a fresh spicy and mint opening aromas and crunchy red berries framed with orange nuances. The floral uniqueness of the violets and iris has a peppery touch in a gentle and generous sip, with an iridescent texture and structure, and a fresh progression in balance with tasty and refined tannins. Pairing: fried sweetbreads
