Cantalici Chianti Classico 2016 750 ml
The Cantalici brothers began their adventure in the mid-nineties.
Up to then they had worked in forestry with their father Loris, tending the woods that alternate with vineyards on the sweetly sloping Tuscan hills, until 1995 when Carlo and Daniele decided to specialize in wine growing techniques.
Their service company was quickly to become a reference point for wine-growers in the area.
Today, it continues to grow, and cater to an ever growing number of clients who request their skills in creating olive groves and vineyards, with services ranging from vine spacing and exposure to actual planting.
The growing consensus encouraged Carlo and Daniele to set up their own winery, putting their years of experience in the field to work for themselves. They saw it as a chance to create a product that would reflect all their love and talent for winemaking.
These were the beginnings of the Cantalici Winery, a dynamic new company that planted its first vines in 1999 and is already a member of the Chianti Classico Consortium.
Intense ruby red color with light garnet reflexes. The nose with ample aromas of cherry and fresh fruits of the forest, well complemented by pleasant hints of vanilla. In the mouth it is balanced, with good tannins and a well-balanced acidity, which evolves into a savory finish and persistent.
