Chianti DOCG, Pietro Majnoni
Chianti Majnoni is very fruit driven. It is a beautifully rounded organic wine with intergrated tannins. A medium bodied Chianti that is very authentic and deeply elegant. There are lovely deep earthy aromas with sweet plum overtones; it is intricate in the mouth with hints of vanilla and a smooth supple finish. Made with organically grown sangiovese grapes; it really is full of fruit and elegantly balanced tannins.
This Chianti is a cut above the rest and very different to the heavily oaked wines so popular in America. There is incredible depth and breadth. It all goes to confirm the Pietro Majnoni Chianti as one of our absolute favourite wines.
