RINASCITA CHIANTI CLASSICO
Rinascita, the Italian word for "rebirth,” is also a play on the Italian word for Renaissance - the period during which Tuscany excelled through its artistic and cultural development.
The wine is predominantly made from our younger vines of Sangiovese with a small addition of Merlot. It is "fruit-forward" in style, yet also soft and graceful with a medium-body.
The Sangiovese grapes used to produce the wine are picked by hand and then fermented at carefully controlled temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the fresh red berry and cherry fruit notes. A small percentage of Merlot, aged in French oak barrels, is then blended with the Sangiovese for added complexity.
The young Sangiovese vines used to make this wine give it the ideal freshness for a food-friendly wine. The Merlot gives it some extra depth and nuance, making this Chianti Classico approachable and ready for early drinking. The wine is graceful, soft, and with attractive fruit. A flexible wine that pairs fantastically with typical dishes generally found in Tuscany or with a Mediterranean diet.
