Wine Description:

A grape-variety of Sangiovese and Canaiolo. Grows on hills dating back to the Pliocene era. A wine of ancient origins, the territories of which were extended in 1716 by the Grand Ducal Proclamation to beyond the hills, known as Chianti.

It's characterized by a bright red color tending to garnet with age.

His bouquet is intense and fruity and its flavour is austere, full-bodied, tasty and slightly tannic, refining to smooth and velvety with time. This wine goes well with roast game, red meat and spicy cheeses, pasta and risotto with meat sauce.


Wine Cellar:

Tenuta Torciano Winery is situated in the heart of Tuscany, 35 minutes from Florence and 20 minutes from Siena, surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and a succession of unique greenery that features towering cypress trees, long stretches of beautiful vineyards, olive groves, forests of oaks and lovely villages.

When you visit Tenuta Torciano Winery, you will totally immerse yourself in Italian culture, together with a Tuscan family consisting of 13 generations of wine producers. Here you will experience warm hospitality and additional Tuscan traditions handed down from father to son.


Area of Production:

One of the first wine regions anywhere to be officially recognized and delimited, Chianti Classico is today what was originally defined simply as Chianti.

Already identified by the early 18th century as a superior zone, the official name of Chianti was proclaimed upon the area surrounding the townships of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole, just north of Siena, by Cosimo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany in an official decree in 1716.


Grapes:

The Chianti Blend is a classic, long-established blend of wine grapes used in the wines of Tuscany, most obviously those from Chianti. The blend’s primary constituent is Tuscany's favorite grape variety, Sangiovese.

This is accompanied by small quantities of lesser-known Tuscan grape varieties Canaiolo, Colorino, Ciliegiolo and Mammolo.

We received this wine in May, and have been enjoying this Chianti very much. We very rarely order Chianti out, and never buy it for home consumption, and so we were not sure , but oh my. It is smooth and rich, and went perfectly with our summer dinner. We will definitely be ordering this one again.

The best Chianti I've ever had. Didn't loose a note of flavor on its journey to America. Terrific find!

I prefer the 'Vicario' Chianti slightly more but an excellent choice nonetheless.

This bottle of Chianti is a great balance between fruitful and dry and pairs well with so many different meals. Would highly recommend!

You wont find a better Chianti out there. The perfect mix of fruity first and then slightly dry. One of the BEST!

A lively ruby red color full of fruity fragrances, it is dry to taste fresh and pleasantly tannic

Great wine as are all the wines from Tenuta Torciano. We currently have 9 different wines from Tenuta Torciano in our cellar; some purchased at the winery and some purchased online. We enjoy them for everyday drinking as well as special occasions.

Very easy to drink. Have enjoyed their Chianti since the wine tasting we went to in the spring of 2017 and it never disappoints.

This is another fantastic Torciano chianti. It's a bit lighter and really is great to just drink by itself, or to have with antipasti and pizza.
