Nittardi 'Belcanto' 2019Regular price €19,70
Belcanto is the Chianti Classico of the beautiful, organic domain Nittardi in Tuscany. On the label none other than Michelangelo Buenarotti, the former owner of the domain, flourishes.
Belcanto is a blend of sangiovese that comes from two completely different vineyards in terms of microclimate, on the one hand a vineyard that is slightly higher (+ 450 meters), on the other hand from a lower part (+ 270 meters). This blend of microclimates provides the finesse and complexity in their first Chianti wine. In the nose, this Chianti is characterized by aromas of ripe cherry and raspberry, a light florality and soft spiciness. In the mouth this wine shows itself as a soft and round, powerful red wine with moderate tannins and a long finish. After winemaking, this wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels of 500 liters and 'botti' of 3500 liters.
