Buondonno Chianti Classico
 
Chianti Classico D.O.C.G.

This is our main farm product (25-30.000 Bordolese bottles per year).
Selected Sangiovese grapes, along with a small amount of Merlot and Syrah, are used to make this wine.

It ages in small and medium sized oak casks, and in second and third passage barriques, for about a year, during which time it becomes richer and more rounded.
The colour is an intense ruby red, the fragrance has aromas of ripe red fruits with hints of spices and vanilla. The tannins are sweet and persistent.
