"Borgo alla Terra" Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG 2020 - Geografico

Borgo alla Terra is a Chianti that belongs to the appellation of Colli Senesi, DOCG. A well-circumscribed hilly area that embraces the city of Siena, covering the southwest area of Chianti Classico DOCG, the historic area of the denomination. The production rules are even stricter, if compared to those of traditional Chianti. Increased selection, for a high quality final product. The starting cut is simple. Sangiovese 90%, Canaiolo 10%. In the cellar, "Quelli del Geografico" make use of modern winemaking techniques, to express all the fruity but rustic charm of a Chianti of great quality. Goal achieved perfectly. You only have to uncork a bottle to realize that. On the nose, intense aromas of ripe cherry, wild berries, anise and even slight hints of spice. The mouthfeel it reveals itself as a pleasantly savoury and elegant red, with clear memories of raspberry jam and a hint of herbs. All well balanced by velvety and ripe tannins. A perfect red wine to accompany a tasty Tuscan snack, with cold cuts and flat bread.

Chianti Geografico is a beautiful story of passion and attachment to its territory. A cooperative born thanks to the initiative of 17 far-sighted winemakers, "Quelli del Geografico", who back in 1961 understood the importance of the extraordinary relationship between a wine and its production territory. From those initial seventeen, today it has reached as many as sixty. The numbers have grown but the passion for their origins and for the prince of the region's grape varieties, Sangiovese, which continues to be the absolute protagonist in the cellar, has not changed. Today, Chianti Geografico is part of the Piccini group, which bought it so as not to risk losing the memory of that group of good winemakers.
