Classification

IGT
Villa Cafaggio is located in Panzano in the centre of Tuscany`s Chianti Classico region and can trace it`s winemaking history back almost 700 years, the winery has interwoven those years of tradition and experience with the innovations of today to become one of the most dynamic and forward looking producers in the Chianti region.

The San Martino wine is made from Sangiovese clones that have been specially selected for their small intensely flavoured berries, these grapes are harvested as late as mid October to allow them further time to ripen and develop flavour. The wine is aged in French barriques for 18 months before being aged for a further 6 months in bottle to allow the oak characteristics to fullow integrate before release.

Deep plum in colour with aromas of steeped strawberries, raspberries and blackberries laced with sweet vanilla oak, on the palate the texture is generously fruity with further forest berry and cassis flavours coupled with herbal, cedar and spice notes

in the well rounded finish.

Chill overkill! ❄️��Keeping Champagne refrigerated isn't recommended for anything more than short term bottle storage https://t.co/TjwzSocGdQ
