Chianti Classico Tenuta Sant’Alfonso is fermented using the most advanced techniques to preserve the grapes’ natural concentration, and is subsequently transferred to French oak barrels with a capacity of 35 hectoliters, where it ages for around one year. Follows a period in the bottle before being released.
Color: intense ruby red.
Bouquet: intense and rich nose, with a pronounced sensation of ripe red fruit and spices.
Taste: warm, smooth and with a good structure. Great smoothness with a good balance
Although not classed as a Riserva, with its immensely refined organoleptic qualities, generous body and extensive ageability, it has the characteristics to be a great companion of full flavored entrees such as roasts and game. Stored properly it can age for 5/6 years.
Serve at 18/20 °C. ABV: 13,5%
