The wine shows floral, spicy, crushed red cherry aromas and flavors, a medium body and good balance helped by fresh acidity.
Pairs well with hors d’oeuvres, poultry, cold cuts and other meats.The grapes for Spalletti Chianti come from the Folonari family estate of TorCalvano in Montepulciano, from vineyards classified for Chianti Classico DOCG. This production is supplemented by other vineyards within the Chianti zone. Yields are kept low to encourage complexity and concentration in aromas and flavors. Fermentation occurs at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks with maceration. The wine is matured in large Slavonian oak casks. The aim is to preserve the wine’s overall “juicy” medium body, fresh berry aromas and crisp fruit character.
