Chianti

Be the first to review this product

Chianti Orange is the agship of Piccini wines.The orange label marks a unique moment not only in the history of the Piccini family, but also in the history of Chianti: marking the first modern image of Chianti for the 21st century. The change to our Chianti label was simple to the point of minimalism. But the real change was brought about by the color orange. Orange is a family legacy for the Piccini’s, symbolizing all the energy, youth and passion that has inspired generations of winemaking.

Piccini Chianti is defined by the great success of its unmistakable label. It is a deep, ruby red color with an intense and persistent fragrance of mature red fruit. It’s a well structured, smooth wine with soft tannins and distinct notes of red fruit. Chianti is an extremely versatile wine and may be paired with a wide variety of foods, from antipasti and hearty soups to roasts or pizza.

Winemaker: Antonella Conti

Details:

Clay is the major component as well as fragmented rock in the form of stone. A selection of the best Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo grapes, identied uniquely with the region of Tuscany, are used in this Chianti. The fruit is processed in steel tanks and undergo a long maceration period. From here traditional techniques called “Governo All’Uso Toscano” are used. This consists of introducing a second fermentation to the winemaking process by adding a selection of withered Sangiovese grapes.This gives the wine intense red fruit aromas and a full, harmonic taste and deep color.
