Barbanera Chianti DOCG 2021, Tuscany, Italy

Barbanera is an Italian wine estate in the south of Tuscany, close to the border with Umbria. It was founded by the Barbanera family in 1938 and today, produces a portfolio that includes the classic regional wines of Tuscany as well as those from Puglia and Sicily. The southwest-facing slopes at the estate are composed mainly of calcareous clay and are planted to a combination of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It is from these grape varieties that the estate creates its flagship Toscana IGT wine, Vecciano. This is a young wine whose intense red color retains strong purple hues. The scent is fruity, vinous, with clear references to violet as well as berries and cherries. It is a product with a harmonious, dry and slightly tannic taste. Light and pleasant, it is suggested to accompany this product with tasty first courses, roasts based on red or white meats, soft cheeses. The quality of Barbanera wines is testified by a rigorous agronomic work in the vineyard and a careful selection of the grapes, in order to bring to the cellar only raw material of excellent quality that is a true expression of the territory.
