The Character

Tasting Notes The wine is a dense ruby red in color. On the nose, refined aromas of ripe plum and iris mingle with the heady scents of truffle and graphite. On the palate, it is fresh, mineral, and concentrated with tannins that slowly, gradually build to an intense crescendo. Persistent and with a perfect nose-palate consistency, Prunaio is already drinking well but has the potential to be excellent after ten years or more years in the bottle.

Overall Unique and complex

Selling Point A Chianti Classico made unexpectedly in Super Tuscan style.

The Story

The winter was mild and very rainy, and spring was late in coming, due to low March temperatures that caused the vines to flower irregularly and over a protracted time period. By the end of June, summer progressed on a regular schedule, with a dry climate and periodic waves of African heat. At the end of August, rainstorms lowered the average temperature and led to a notable diurnal temperature range, which in turn benefitted the vines by allowing the grapes to accumulate a good polyphenolic concentration, while at the same time protecting their acidity. The grapes continued to ripen unevenly, however, even though September and October were excellent in terms of overall climate. In order to guarantee the best quality, all the vines and different varieties were harvested in at least two different sessions.
