Chianti Classico – Castello Il Palagio – 2016
This wine represent our most important production. It is made with a blend of 3 different grapes. The color is a bright, limpid purple red and the bouquet is intensely fruity with a slight scent of violets and red cherry and cranberries. The flavour is balanced between a dry tannic taste and a velvety one. Aged in steel tanks and 3000 lt Slavonian oak barrels. It is a full bodied wine that can be aged up to 8 years, but it would be better to drink it in the first 5 years.
