2019 Fiorini Chianti Superiore


Region: Tuscany, Italy

Viticulture: Conventional

Winemaker: Franco Bernabei

Winery Established Date: 

Wine Tasting note:

Fiorini Chianti is a tasty, medium bodied Italian wine with refreshing red fruit flavours, bright acidity which adds to its structure and makes it taste great with tomato based food. It’s a traditional style of Chianti made from 90% Sangiovese with the balance being the Tuscan grapes, Canaiolo and Ciliegiolo, and a touch of French Cabernet Sauvignon, which adds to the structure. The fruit is rich and ripe with dark cherry and plum and notes of violet, spice and liquorice. All of the grapes come from the Chianti DOCG and the wine is aged in a combination of new and old barriques and large older oak.

Sommeliers Recommendation: Fiorini is an honest, clean and fresh Chianti Superiore. It has an intense nose of red cherries, cigar box and violets that is representative of Tuscan Sangiovese. Round and  and a touch of spices such as cumin and cloves add to the long-lasting finish. A great balance between acidity, tannins and fruit has been developed by aging in traditional barrels. Can be enjoyed by itself or with your best Pasta Pomodoro or Ragu.
