Label for Piccini Chianti Classico

Product Details

Tasting Notes

Fourth generation family winemakers Piccini have been making wines in Chianti since 1882.

Their Chianti Classico is just that - a real classic.

Made from a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot grapes, with glorious cherry aromas and black fruit flavours.

Beautifully smooth and ripe, it's a dream with roast lamb.

Storage Instructions

This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 3 years

Background

History

Piccini's story began in 1882 with Angiolo Piccini, who owned only 7 ha of vineyards in the Chianti area. Even today, Piccini is still 100% family owned by Mario and Martina Piccini who mark the 4th generation of the family. Piccini is situated in Castellina in Chianti and it is one of the biggest player in Tuscany.

Regional info

Chianti Classico is a land of ancient traditions that was civilized in remote periods first by the Etruscans, who left many traces of their activity in the wine sector, and then by the Romans. The characteristics of the climate, terrains and altitudes have made Chianti Classico a region that excels in the production of premium wines. Rows of vines alternating with olive orchards are a characteristic feature of the Chianti landscape
