Product description

This is aromatic Chianti from vineyards around Vinci, the village west of Florence famed for its native son Leonardo. Aromas of baked red fruits and vanilla greet the nose. On the palate, it boasts soft tannins and a long finish. Pair this with rabbit, veal, spaghetti in tomato sauce, or roast pork. This is a great value, but more than that, it's just a good wine. Fattoria di Faltognano sits on the south facing slopes of the Montalbano hills, between Florence and Pisa. Owner Roberto Comparini's family has owned this estate since around 1,000 A.D. The uniqueness of the property lies in the continuity of its ownership and traditions. The vineyards lie downhill from the winery, closer to the town of Vinci, where the sandstone and calcareous soil of the slopes blends with the sandy clay of the lower Arno plain. One of the most unique facts about Faltognano is their vines. For generations all grafting occurred within their property, creating singular clones perfectly adapted to their soil and climate. Due to the varying altitudes and ripening periods, the grapes from each vineyard are hand-harvested and individually fermented.
