Chianti Pontormo displays an intense and bright ruby red colour with violet hues. Made with Sangiovese grapes, it has an intense and fruity aroma with floral notes. It has a pleasant, fresh and well-balanced flavour with good persistence.
The 1960s were difficult years for the Chianti Classico: an economic and technical crisis hit Chianti winegrowing, which was still stuck using old production methods.
It was the visionary Sir Armando Nunzi who finally managed to persuade a group of winegrowers to get on board with the innovative idea of founding a modern cooperative winery capable of harvesting and producing wine from the grapes of future partners.
Thus it was that on 21 June 1965, Sir Gualtiero Armando Nunzi, together with his initial group of 17 winegrowers, united under the name of Castelli del Grevepesa.
