Castello di Verrazzano¬†Chianti Classico¬†2013
Light ruby red color. Complex and persistent aroma, with youthful notes of fresh fruit and violets. Light-bodied, harmonious and round on the palate, with flavors of red fruits, black currant and plum.
The spirit and industry of Verrazzano’s youthful owners, Luigi & Silvia Cappellini, have played a major role in the burgeoning reputation of this ancient estate in the Greve district of Tuscany’s Chianti Classico zone. 105 acres of vines thrive in Verrazzano’s limestone-rich soil. Though present in southern areas of Chianti Classico, limestone is unique to Verrazzano in the cooler, norhtern sector, accounting for the singular blend of muscularity and finesse evident in Verrazzano wines.
