Salcheto - 2019 Chianti DOCG
"Salco means the 'willow tree' in the ancient Tuscan language, an important plant for wine territories throughout history as its branches were used to bind the vines. Salcheto is the name of the stream which springs at the foot of the town of Montepulciano and winds through a valley where willows abounded.This stream is the boundary of our organic and biodynamic estate, rooted in the historic district of Vino Nobile, in the southeast of the Siena province of Tuscany.
This is an easy drinking, everyday wine composed of Sangiovese (85%), Canaiolo (5%), Mammolo (5%) and Merlot (5%). Part of this wine is matured in 300L American oak tonneaux. The 2019 vintage is fresh and intense, due to a pretty classic climate, able though to push the fruit until a good maturation. Certified organic" – Salcheto
