Excellent concentration for a Chianti. Lovely vibrant cherry fruit with soft tannins and long finish. There are notes of cedar wood, herbs and a touch of sweet spice.
The 13th Century Ormanni estate is located right in the heart of Chianti, between the towns of Poggibonsi and Castellina in Chianti. Proof of the incredible heritage of this Tuscan property can be found in Dante Alighieri’s “Divina Commedia”,where the Ormanni family is mentioned. For the last 200 years the estate has been owned by the Brini Batacchi family, and itis Paolo Brini Batacchi together with his daughter Paola who run the winery today.The Ormanni property covers an area of 242 ha of land, 68 of which are vineyards dedicated principally to the cultivation of Sangiovese.The Ormanni Chianti and Chianti Classico are sincere, soil driven wines, expressive of the Barberino Val d’Elsa commune, where Sangiovese takes on a brooding, austere character, though maintaining a generous, fruity core.
