Conti Capponi - 'Villa Calcinaia' Chianti Classico - 2016
The selected grapes of the traditional red varietals like Sangiovese and Canaiolo are handpicked from the vineyards on the estate between mid-September and the beginning of October and fermented in stainless steel tanks for the production of Chianti Classico. The different blocks of Sangiovese and Canaiolo are aged in 30 hectolitre oak casks. After 20 months of ageing the cuvee is then made and aged for another 4-6 months in cement vats built inside the winery. The colour of the wine is ruby red with garnet shadings; a fruity flavour with traces of cherry and ripe fruit. On the palate, the wine appears to be of medium structure, typically well balanced, fully flavoured and persistent in its aftertaste.
**Each wine is priced for retail/takeout only. If you decide to enjoy your wine at Blue Door when you pick up your order an additional wine service charge of $15 will be applicable!**
