Some notes about the winning wines

Chianti Classico Montemaggio 2011
Chianti Classico is the wine that belongs to this area: the Chianti. It is a wine characterised by an elegant and delicate bouquet, very versatile, perfect for every occasion. The 2011 year was very hot in August, but as Montemaggio is on top of a high hill, the grapes did achieve the optimal ripeness, without becoming overly ripe as in other areas that are located at a lower altitude than Montemaggio.

For more info, click here.

Quinta Essentia di Montemaggio IGT 2009
This wine was created for the husband of the owner of Montemaggio as a present for his birthday. It is a wine made with love and a precious gift. It is a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Sangiovese. This wine has a full taste with velvety tannins and it is well balanced and persistent. It has a perfume of red fruit with a touch of mineral and earth.

For more info, click here.

Chianti Classico Riserva Montemaggio 2010
Chianti Classico Riserva is a wine produced with the best grapes of Sangiovese of the oldest vineyards of Montemaggio. The 2010 year was a good year and from the harvest we were able to produce an excellent wine. This wine has an intense and elegant bouquet and a full, rich and velvet-smooth taste.

For more info, click here.

Torre di Montemaggio IGT 2012
Torre di Montemaggio is obtained from the best grapes of Merlot. It has a full taste with velvety tannins and a pleasant freshness and persistence. It has a delicate perfume that it is an ideal companion to elaborate courses or more experimental dishes.
