Burchino Chianti Superiore DOCG


Appellation: Chianti DOCG 

Region: Tuscany 

Varietals: 90% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo, 5% Ciliegiolo

Alcohol: 12.5% 

Estate: The Burchino Estate 

Description: Intense ruby red. Characteristic bouquet with plenty of cherry, leather and cedars flavors. The round mouthful with notes of licorice and tar is wrapped around ripe almost candied fruit. 

Vinification and refinement: This Chianti Superiore is the result of a careful selection in Burchino vineyard, inside Colline Pisane production area, of the best Sangiovese grapes together with a small portion of an autochthon grape, Ciliegiolo
Hand picked grapes are immediately fermented in the modern cellars of Burchino. A prolonged maceration with the skins gives to the wines complex aromas and a fruity scent. The ageing takes place for over a year in traditional Slavonian oak casks. The wine is refined in bottle for a further period. 

Food pairings: Ideal with steaks and grilled meats, perfect with mature cheeses. Serve at room temperature.
