Ruby red colour. Fruity nose, cherry driven, fresh palate of light cherry fruit, soft, smooth and well balanced with gentle tannins.
Over the last few years, Piccini has made production choices leading to a clear increase in quality in its Chianti. The fruit of this decision is the lively ruby red color of the wine, tending to turn garnet with ageing, its intensely vinous aroma and its dry, tasty and harmonious flavor. Piccini’s Chianti is a perfect accompaniment for soups and meat dishes of all kinds, while the Reserve is more suited to roasted and braised meats, game and mature cheeses.One of the particular characteristics of Chianti Piccini is the fact that it is a suitable accompaniment for a wide range of foods.
