Poggio Civetta Chianti Classico Farnese
This wine is made from Sangiovese 90%, Canaiolo 5%, Cabernet Sauvignon 5% grapes. Manual harvest carried out from mid September to mid October.
Vinification takes place after delicate crushing of the grapes. The must macerates on the skins for 1-2 weeks in order to favor the extraction of color and other polyphenolic substances. 9 Months of aging in small and big barrels.
Deep ruby-red color. Fine, with scents of wild berry fruits, violets and a nice spicy finish. Dry and fresh flavor, with full body and big tannin.
It is excellent with richly-flavored dishes, especially the traditional specialties of Tuscan cuisine, grilled steaks and matured cheese.
