- Other Info:
- Volpetto is produced by selecting the best Sangiovese grapes in the Empoli area. The vines are an average of ten to fifteen years old and they are planted with a density of about 4,200 vines/ha. Grapes are de-stemmed and crushed and fermented with selected yeasts at a temperature not exceeding 28C. Malolactic is induced by adding selected bacteria. Maceration is short, lasting five days. The wine is aged in oak casks, (about 50-60 HL), for about six months before bottling
Medium-deep red/purple in colour, this is a very appealing modern Chianti showing plenty of ripe cherry and plum characters with gentle savoury notes. The palate is well fruited and rounded with a juicy mouthfeel and pleasantly drying finish. This is a great drinking medium-bodied red and offers amazing value for money.
