MAGGIOLO

CHIANTI CLASSICO DOCG

Maggiolo Chianti Classico D.O.C.G. is a taste of the joyful sunniness of our area. The name of this tasty, rounded wine is based on that of the iris (“giaggiolo”), a typical flower of the Lamole area that dots our vineyards in the month of May (“Maggio”) when it is at the height of its splendor. We can perceive it in the enchanting sensations and the gentle, soothing textures it offers us with every sip.

GRAPES

Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot

PRODUCTION ZONE

Lamole, in the commune of Greve in Chianti

ALTITUDE

420 - 655 mt a.l.s.

AGING POTENTIAL

5/6 years

The grapes are destalked and the berries are passed through an optical selector. After pressing, the must ferments with the skins in stainless steel tanks, where it remains until late in winter, keeping the Sangiovese separate from the must/wine from the international varieties. Follows a period of maturation of around one-year and a half in 50 and 70 hl oak casks for the Sangiovese and in barriques for the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Its bright ruby red color leads into a floral bouquet of cyclamens and violets, with fruity notes of mulberries, blackberries and blueberries and hints of sweet spices and cacao. The palate is dominated by fresh yet mellow sensations.

This wine goes marvelously with dishes that contain spices or have piquant sensations, or herby recipes. It is also ideal with various types of soups, especially those made from chickpeas, wild peas or lentils and simply seasoned with extra virgin olive oil. Try it too with the meat dishes of Asian or South American cuisines.
