Located north of the village of Greve in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, the Nozzole estate covers a striking, rugged, mountainous area of about 1,000 acres, a third of which is vines and olive groves. Select parcels in the Tenuta di Nozzole estate are dedicated to Villa Nozzole Chianti Classico. Crafted with a fruit-forward, New World character, Villa Nozzole Chianti is ready to drink upon release. Extended aging in large oak casks provides additional roundness and depth.
The wine shows ripe, crushed red cherry aromas and flavors with an earthy note. Tangy acidity and fine tannins balance the juicy fruit character.
This wine pairs very well with meats, pizza, pasta and poultry.
POINTS OF DISTINCTION
- A fruit-forward, New World style Chianti from a highly regarded estate
- Matured for 12 months in French oak barrels for increased complexity
