Casanuova di Nittardi 'Vigna Doghessa' 2019Regular price €25,50
Casanuova di Nittardi is a Chianti Classico made from 100% sangiovese from the Single Vineyard 'Vigna Doghessa' located in the hills of Castellina at 450 meters above sea level. This vineyard characterizes its wine with great finesse due to the presence of slate in the soil.
In the nose, this Chianti is characterized by aromas of ripe cherry, violet and soft Mediterranean herbs/spices. 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 matures for 14 months in 500 liter French oak barrels.
Nice to know: Since 1981, Nittardi has paid an annual tribute to the former owner, Michelangelo, by an internationally recognized artist such as Hundertwasser, Horst Janssen, Giuliano Ghelli, Yoko Ono, Mimmo Paladino, Günter Grass, Dario Fo, Karl Otto Götz, Alain Clément and Hsiao Chin to design the label and wrapping paper.
