Faunae - 2016

VINTAGE

Denomination

Chianti Classico DOCG

Description

Representative of an uncontaminated land of breath-taking landscapes that has remained unchanged through time, Faunae perfectly expresses the essence of Chianti Classico and its terroir.

Vintage Report

The regular rainfall during the winter, together with the dry and sunny spring that followed, contributed to a homogeneous development of the leaves. During the first weeks of August, significant rain brought some much-needed respite to the plants, storing all the necessary substances in the clusters to obtain a product of excellent quality. Given the altitude of the growing area, summer dryness is often avoided. September and October were drier with chilly evening temperatures, allowing the grapes to develop and ripen perfectly and bringing pleasant aromatic notes to the wine.

Tasting Notes

An intensely ruby-red wine with bright hues. The bouquet predominately features cherry, blackberry and wild berries, and in the mouth the wine is enveloping and soft, with good tannin levels and notable persistence.

Serving suggestions

This elegant, structured wine is an ideal accompaniment to grilled meats, aged cheeses and ethnic dishes.
