Intense ruby red colour, this Chianti Classico made from Sangiovese grapes displays elegant fragances, notes of violet and hints of ripe fruit. Full, harmonious flavour with soft and velvety tannins and a persistent finish.
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.
