Product Description

Chianti Rufina D.O.C.G.

90% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo nero, 5% Ciliegiolo

“The ploughed leguminous between the rows feed our vines, the breeze
and the sun protect them from disease, a patient waiting assures the
perfect healthiness and ripeness of the grapes. The natural balance and
ancient traditions are the source of Cedro, a Chianti Rufina that has
great personality and that expresses the characteristics of this
appellation, also defined as “the highest of the Chiantis”.

Vineyards: Vineyards from the 90’s and younger for the Cedro trained in Guyot & spurred cord.

Production: Approx. 1,5 kg of grapes per vine.

Harvest: Mid October.

Vinification: Soft destemming and crushing of the grapes, fermentation and  maceration at controlled temperature, in stainless steel for about 20 days with numerous pumpovers and delestages.

Maturation: In French oak barrels of 35 and 70 hl and cement vats for 24 months.

Refinement: At least 6 months in bottles before release.

Ageing capacity: 10-12 years.

Sensory characteristics: Ruby red in color with blackberries and violet scents. Firm and soft tannins, long with a spicy  finish it is particularly envelopping on the nose, with fruity notes and spices. The Sangiovese shows here its greatness, soft and silky. It is full bodied with a predominant ripe cherry flavour. The tannins are fleshy and compact.

Serving suggestions: In its early years this wine is complimented with all food and when aged it is delicious with sauced meats, poultry and roasts.

Serving temperature: 16-18° C
