A vineyard which, from a ridge, slopes down into a gorge; all around, only woods and
lakes. It is here, on Tenuta di Nozzole, in Greve in Chianti, that one of the historic crus of Tenute Folonari is born, the first harvest of which dates back to 1980. La Forra Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG is a wine in which, the viticultural and oenological sciences, are applied wisely; an example of how tradition, understood as the historical path of wine, has been taken over by innovation. For this reason, for 40 years La Forra has represented the perfect expression of the historic territory of Greve, the capital of the Florentine Chianti Classico.
Tasting: The 2018 vintage shows aromas of morello cherry liqueur, ripe red fruits, citrus peel and
delicate tertiary nuances of cocoa and incense. A rich and elegant wine, intense and persistent, characterised by a gentle but firm tannin.
Pairing: Villa di Nozzole suggests to pair it with pigeon filled with black truffle, spring onions and carrots glazed with balsamic vinegar
First vintage: 1980
Shelf life: up to 10 years
