Alcohol: 14.5%

Grape(s): Sangiovese

Localization: Tuscany, Italy

Tasting Notes: Camphor, new leather, dark spice and ripe wild berry aromas waft out of the glass. On the dense palate, close-grained tannins accompany roasted coffee bean, coconut, licorice and dried cherry.

Notes: The grapes of this Chianti Classico are harvested from the younger vineyards located in the lower part of the hills.  

Food Pairing: This wine accompanies every food, from starters with
cured meats, to pasta with ragout, up to main courses with meat and cheese.

The Domain: The 13th Century Ormanni estate is located in the heart of Chianti, between the towns of Poggibonsi and Castellina in Chianti. Proof of the heritage of this Tuscan property can be found in Dante Alighieri’s “Divina Commedia,” where the Ormanni family is mentioned.

For the last 200 years the estate has been owned by the Brini Batacchi family, and it is Paolo Brini Batacchi and his daughter, Paola, who run the winery today.

The Ormanni property covers an area of 242 ha of land, 68 of which are vineyards
dedicated principally to the cultivation of Sangiovese. They also have two beautiful agriturismo resorts, Podere La Querce and Podere Montignano.

The Ormanni Chianti and Chianti Classico are sincere, soil-driven wines, expressive of the Barberino Val d’Elsa area, where Sangiovese takes on a brooding, austere character, while still maintaining a generous, fruity core.
