Our Chianti Classico DOCG “I Casali” is named after the estate in which it was harvested. The soft Classic Chianti has good acidity and pleasant tannins which mark as its best features. It is a great “glass” to be shared among friends on a cheerful evening.
Vines: The grapes used are Sangiovese (90%) Canaiolo (5%) and Merlot (5%)
Soil: The soil is semi soft with tendencies of clay. Because it is a skeletal-rich soil, it is considered on average, fertile.
Training: The method of training is the cordon with plant density of 5,000 vines/hectare.
Harvest: The harvest is done manually and usually begins in late September, early October.
Soaking and fermentation: The fermentation process is done at 28-38 degree celsius in steel containers where polyphenols are extracted from the skins gently. The fermentation process lasts about 20 days.
Aging: The young wine is transferred into 25hl oak barrels where it remains for at least 12 months. It is during this long aging process that the wine reaches its complexity and softness. In order to integrate the fruity flavors with the floral, we use the large 25hl barrels as opposed to the smaller barriques. This also helps create the wooden scents found typically in Sangiovese.
Appearance: Ruby red, dense and consistent.
Aroma: Intense and persistent with fruity floral scents.
Taste: Warm, soft and fruity with light tannins and pleasant acidity.
Considerations: A wine best consumed within 4-6 years after harvest.
Pairings: It is a wine suitable for both first and second courses. It pairs well with rich lasagna and grilled meats and roasts.
