    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Greve district in the northern portion of Chianti Classico, south of Florence in Tuscany. 105 acres of vine planted at altitudes ranging from 1,150 to 1,480 feet in Verrazzano's limestone-rich soil. Though present in warmer, southern areas of Chianti Classico, limestone is unique to Verrazzano in the cooler, northern portion of the district. The soil here is extremely lean and stony (43% lime, 29% clay, 28% sand). Fertilization is entirely organic.

    80% Sangiovese Grosso; 20% Canaiolo, Trebbiano Toscano, Malvasia Lunga del Chianti

    Light ruby red. Complex and persistent aroma, with youthful notes of fresh fruit and violets. Light-bodied, harmonious and round on the palate, with flavors of red fruits, black currant and plum.

    Lightly dry on tongue. Is sharp and a bit bitter if you don't let it breathe 2 hours. Good balance with cheese, but does seem to need to be paired with food, not just enjoyed alone.
