I Bastioni

Chianti Classico D.O.C.G.

Chianti Classico D.O.C.G.
Sangiovese 80%, Merlot 18% Malvasia Nera 2%
Made with wine making techniques similar to Collazzi, ‘’I Bastioni’’
combines the elegance and pleasantness of Sangiovese, its main grape varietal, with the roundness and power that small parts of Merlot and Malvasia Nera give to the wine: juicy, ripe tannins give complexity and character to this wine.
Magnificent ruby red, with dark sparkles.
Notes of cherries, spices dark, combine with perfume of small red fruits and spices.
Tasty, mineral, complex, with a gentle, captivating tannic structure. The long final makes this wine ideal to enjoy with food.
Bastioni is the best companion of the good cusine.
This wine’s structure demands combinations with red meats, such as stake and filet.
The Vineyards grown at Collazzi estate, registered as Chianti Classico DOCG are located in the town of San Casciano Val di Pesa (Florence).
