Vineyard & Winemaking Notes
Vinification is carried out in a very traditional manner, at a controlled temperature of 68°F with pumping musts and wine crushing dregs for over 10 – 12 days. The racking and decanting process then follows for the clearing of the wine. This all takes place in the heart of the Chianti region, in Siena’s unspoiled countryside. The rich soil from the Tuscan hills and the sunny weather conditions combine to create an ideal situation for grape cultivation. In our lush vineyard only the highest quality grapes are carefully selected and blended to create our prized Candoni Chianti D.O.C.G. (Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin).
Pairs exceptionally well with red meats, hearty soups, and aged cheeses.
How to Serve
Serve at 64-68°F in large transparent crystal goblets.
Conserve in a cool, dark cellar at a constant temperature, ensuring that the bottle is in a horizontal position.
