Tiamo Chianti is sourced from a 40 acre vineyard that sits at an elevation of 800 feet in the Montespertoli hills near Florence. Grapes are grown in sandy clay with sea fossil deposits and are all hand-picked at low yields. Tiamo Chianti is estate grown and is a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. After hand-picking, the grapes are sorted and crushed. Fermentation takes place at low temperatures over 15–20 days before a gentle pressing. No oak is used. Chianti has a deep garnet color and has an intense bouquet with hints of licorice and spice and red fruits. It is fruity but soft. It pairs perfectly with roasted/grilled meats, stews, pastas with red sauces, pizza and firmer cheeses. Ideally serve at about 60°F.
