Santa Margherita Chianti Classico DOCG

The color is an intense ruby red with faintly garnet tones. The initial aromatic sensations are sweetish and vanilla-like, typical of wines matured in barriques. The clean, ethereal bouquet then highlights Sangiovese’s spicy notes. On the palate we again find very well-integrated oak which, however, soon gives way to hints of wild berry fruit preserve and to that nuance of spices we perceived on the nose. It is recommended for barbecued meat, like sliced Chianina steak, or with game, such as pheasant stuffed with truffles: excellent with mature cheeses.
