Chianti Colli Fiorentini DOCG "Collerosso"



Even the Chianti Colli Fiorentini, such as Chianti Montespertoli, falls in the seven sub-zones that characterize the Chianti region. Ancient denomination and widespread as it includes the hills lying to the south east and west of Florence and the Arno Valley and the Val d’Elsa. Core product of our Chianti wines thanks to the late harvest but also because the wine obtained undergoes a further period of aging in the wood for at least twelve months. Thus this enhances its features, making it one of the most popular wines among our clients. Intense ruby red color, distinctly fruity accompanied by a subtle toasted hint, which enhances the finesse and elegance. To the palate it's full and persistent with notes of vanilla and toast, with soft tannins resulting from a suitable choice of wood. It goes very well with tasty red meats as is the classic Florentine steak and hunted game. Wine of high longevity for its permanency in the bottle.
