"Contessa di Radda" Chianti Classico DOCG 2019 - Geografico

"Quelli del Geografico", as the sixty Tuscan winemakers who run the historic winery are often called, have built their success on the typicality of the wines they offer, based on the region's main grape variety, Sangiovese. This Contessa di Radda, Chianti Classico DOCG, is a fine example. It comes from a blend of 95% Sangiovese, with a small addition of Merlot. Harvesting of the grapes, which come from hilly vineyards in the classic area, begins end of September/beginning of October. The grapes were vinified separately with a maceration of about 14 days. After fermentation and racking, the wine goes into cement vats for malolactic fermentation, and from there into the bottle. The result is a decidedly traditional red, with a floral and fruity nose where the fresh notes of cherry and raspberry stand out clearly. on the palate it is fresh and enjoyable. Elegant and spicy, it has a soft and bright finish.

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.
