Altadonna Chianti Classico Chioccioli Altadonna, 2016


Grape Variety

Cabernet Sauvignon

Brothers Niccolo and Enrico inherited a passion for wine from their father – Stefano Chioccioli, a well-known and respected consultant. The brothers chose to “return to the soil” (Enrico trained as a lawyer) and they do everything from pruning to bottling themselves. Their 2016 has a spicy incense aroma leading to a concentrated structured palate with flavours of dark fruits and cherries. It is medium bodied with quite firm tannins and will benefit from some more time in bottle to mellow. The 12 hectares of vineyards are located in two areas – Gaiole, close to the winery, and Quercegrossa. Grapes were handpicked into small boxes, passed on a sorting table and de-stemmed into tank then fermented on skins for 25 days. The wine was aged in two and three-year-old oak barrels for a year.
