Description

The Chianti Classico of Tenuta Casenuova is born on the hills of Panzano in Chianti, in the province of Florence. The company was owned by the Gandolfini family for decades, only to be acquired in 2014 by Philippe Austruy, who already owned some châteaux in France. The supervision of the vineyards and the preparation of the wine blends are supervised by the consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt.

The harvest is manual and takes place, depending on the year, between the second week of September and the first ten days of October. The grapes are vinified in vitrified concrete tanks, with pumping over and pressing throughout the period of stay in the tank. The racking and pressing of the pomace take place by means of a vertical press. This is followed by an aging period of 12 months in a cement tank and in a large 25 hl Slavonian oak barrel. Finally the wine is further refined in the bottle for 18 months.

In the glass the wine is an intense ruby red color with garnet hues. The nose reveals aromas of violet and red and black fruit, raspberry and blackberry above all, with final balsamic notes of licorice and pepper. The taste is full and full-bodied, with dense and ripe tannins and good persistence.

Ideal in combination with roasted and stewed red meats and with game and semi-aged cheeses.
