Notes from the Winemaker:
Located north of the village of Greve in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, the Nozzole estate covers a striking, rugged, mountainous area of about 1,000 acres at 300 meters in elevation. In order to obtain concentration and complexity in the wine, yields are kept low. The grapes are hand harvested, destemmed and crushed. Fermentation is initiated on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, followed by a maceration period to draw out color and tannins. The wine is racked into stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation before aging in oak vats and in bottle before release. The wine is bottled on the estate.

Tasting Notes:
Crisp, ripe, red berry and cherry aromas and flavors and earthy undernotes are shaped by vibrant, fresh acidity and a backbone of firm yet elegant tannins.

Food Pairing:
Pairs very well with meats, poultry and cheeses.

Points of Distinction:

  • A classic, traditional Chianti from the Folonari family, making wine since the 1700s
  • Matured for 24 months in oak barrels and 3 months in bottle before release
  • Estate bottled, from a highly regarded estate

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - James Suckling:
"Rich and aromatic on the nose with sour cherries, light hazelnuts and dried fruit. Full-bodied and very rich with lots of fruit and layers of chewy tannins. Flavorful finish. Give it some time to soften and open." (7/2021)

91 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Ripe and silky, this red reveals cherry, raspberry, floral and woodsy underbrush aromas and flavors. Firm and fluid, with a lingering, juicy finish. Drink now through 2028." - BS (Web Only - 2021)
