Product Description

At 350 meters in elevation, the 10-acre Il Pareto vineyard has clay soil with lime and gravel-size stones. The soil composition is ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon, with a high proportion of galestro rock. Il Pareto grapes are manually harvested, destemmed and crushed before fermentation and malolactic fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Maceration on the lees for 15 days promotes the extraction of optimal color and fine, structured tannins. The wine is aged in Allier oak barriques, part new and part one year old, for 16 months, and then in bottle for a minimum of 6 months.

HARVEST NOTE

2011 was a balanced vintage. Some heat at the end of the season was mitigated by the clay soils of Nozzole vineyards. Water reserves accumulated over some months helped vines manage higher temperatures near the end of the growing cycle. In addition, the Sangiovese vines have become well-adapted to the climate of the Chianti region. As a result, the grape bunches ripened 1-2 weeks earlier than normal. Good conditions during the change of seasons contributed to a great vintage in Chianti Classico. A warm winter with rain introduced a mild spring, with rain around the end of May and beginning of June. This was a good water supply for the vines, whose development was slightly advanced. Heat at the end of June and beginning of July accelerated ripening. August was very hot with no rain before cool September temp’s completed the season. Quantity fell 10% on average.

TASTING NOTE

This wines classic Cabernet aromas and flavors of cassis and black fruits have intriguing dried herb, spice, vanilla and cedar notes. On the palate, jammy fruit leads to firm, noble tannins before a long finish.

FOOD PAIRING

Pairs well with roasted meats, hearty poultry, and game.
