Often one of the finest straight Chianto Classico reds, this pure Sangiovese from Giovanni Manetti is no exception: deeply coloured and polished with glossy, sweetly ripe sour cherryish fruit rounded out by subtly spicy background oak and that telltale twist of acidity that brings balance to a wine of big flavour and personality.

The wine shows seamless integration with bright fruit pitted against warmer tones of leather and tobacco. It‘s like a perfectly blalnced scale with rich intensity on one side and elegant fruit on the other.

A tightly coiled, linear profile defines this sinewy red, whose flavours evoke cherry, raspberry, tobacco and underbrush.
