Description of the wine: Chianti is the best Italian wine known in the world, Hemingway was already talking about it a century ago during the First World War. Since then many things have changed, in best! The Chianti of Palazzo Massaini wants to represent the deep link that unites the wine to the territory and its history, although revisited in a modern way. This wine maintains all the freshness and pleasant acidity that are part of the intimate nature of Chianti but, at the same time, presents an intense color, with purple shades, expresses a purity of scents that remind of a wild berry jam, resinous essences and licorice. On the palate the polite acidity and balanced tannin make it versatile, expressive, suitable for all those who love to taste not only a wine, but also a territory.
