Chianti Classico

Details

Nozzole estate consists of 1,000 acres of vineyards at 300 meters in elevation in the Chianti Classico zone. In order to obtain concentration and complexity in the wine, yields are kept low. The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed and crushed. Fermentation was initiated on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and maceration lasted 15-20 days. The wine was racked into stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation before aging for 16 months in large Slavonian oak vats followed by a minimum of 3 months in bottle before release. 2010 had below average temperatures; a very cold winter was followed by a cool, rainy spring, with the result that flowering was later than normal. Hot weather in July accelerated growth, which proceeded slower from August-September, which remained hot. Late September and early October had fine days of average seasonal temperatures along with some rain and hail. The best producers picked selectively and in stages, dictated by ripeness. Lower yields exhibited excellent quality. Crisp, ripe, red berry and cherry aromas are shaped by vibrant, fresh acidity. In the mouth, flavors show classic Sangiovese notes of earth, mushrooms and leather, with a backbone of firm yet elegant tannins. Pairs well with meats and meat pasta sauces, poultry and hard cheeses
