Antico Borgo di Sugame Chianti Classico: In the best vintages this wine is produced with 100% Sangiovese. Other vintages, a small part of Merlot is added. It is fermented for 12/18 days in steel vats, using native yeasts present on the skins of the grapes. The malolactic fermentation takes place in the oak tonneaux, where the wine then matures for the following 12 months. It is aged for a further 2 months in the still vats, and 2 more months in the bottle itself. Deep ruby red in appearance with a nose that is fruity and characteristic of the traditional Sangiovese grape. On the palate it is tannic with a good structure and long aromatic finish. Can be drunk with traditional Tuscan cold cuts and mature cheese and grilled red meats.
