Chianti Superiore DOCG Fillet - Usiglian del Vescovo

Usiglian del Vescovo produces this Chianti Superiore DOCG with scrupulous care, an excellence of the territory that finds an expressive force in this rare terroir. Chianti Superiore DOCG is the bearer of all the typical characteristics of the denomination, starting with its brilliant red colour. Garnet veins lend austerity to the glass, giving Chianti Superiore suggestions of value. Hints of violets and red fruits populate a complex bouquet, very rich and intense. On the palate it is soft, compact in its sensations and linked by coherent aromas. The finish closes with an unexpected fruity freshness. Usiglian del Vescovo hits bullseye with this Chianti Superiore DOCG, a red wine with an unmistakable Tuscan character.

Anno Domini 1078. it is then that the history of Usiglian del Vescovo begins, at that time a feud of the bishops of Lucca known by the name of Usigliano di Palaia. Protagonist of the evolution of many fortified structures into farm-villas, Usiglian del Vescovo has never for a single moment lost the strong link that ties it to the area. Today the new winery is 14 years old: built in 2004, it combines historical elements with technological grafts, showing an ancient and modern face at the same time. A winery of value, which has been able to preserve and cultivate a strong relationship with a terroir that has given Italian wine fame and honours throughout the world.
