Chianti Classico DOCG "Belriguardo"
The Chianti Classico Belriguardo is produced from the heart of the Chianti Classico. The grapes are selected after careful and meticulous work in the vineyard. It is hard to find another vine able to express the characteristics of the soil and to modify its own scents depending on the ground where it was born. The floral notes of violet and red - berry fruits are well integrated with delicate spicy notes and the wine is balanced, dry, velvety, rich in tannins on the mouth. It’s perfect with important first courses, but the best pairing is the Florentine steak.
