Chianti has long been regarded by many as the most Italian of wines, not only because it is the most widely produced classified wine, but also because it possesses a unique personality. Banfi Chianti Classico embodies all the characteristics that have made this wine an enduring classic: an alluring bouquet of black fruit and violets, rich flavours of cherry and leather, subtle tannins and good acidity for dining. Fermentation takes place with a traditional skin contact of 8 to 10 days. Ageing in French oak barriques for 7 months follows. Bottling is carried out in the summer following the harvest.
