Nozzole is the modern expression of pure Sangiovese within the Chianti Classico
DOCG appellation of Tenuta di Nozzole where, in a unique ecosystem of Mediterranean scrubland, in the hills of Greve in Chianti, reveals itself in all its potential and elegance.
Vintage: A fairly cool spring was followed by a hot and long summer characterised by good temperature variations between day and night (minimum temperatures were always low in both July and August) which allowed a regular grape ripening process. No water stress thanks to the June and September rains. All these elements are the prerequisites for another excellent vintage of Chianti Classico with great structure and great balance.
Tasting: Bright ruby red colour, floral hints of rose, violet and aromatic herbs. A great sensory orchestra on the palate directed by firm and pleasant tannins. Flavourful and richly vinous.
Pairing: Villa di Nozzole suggests to pair it with a beefsteak Florentine style, preferably of the Chianina breed with zolfino variety white beans, soaked in extra virgin olive oil
First vintage: 1971
Shelf life: up to 6 years
Curiosity: Nozzole Chianti Classico is the wine of one of the most historically known farms of the Chianti Classico area
