The soul of the Villa Le Corti, condensed in the expression of the most authentic character of the San Casciano Val di Pesa hills in Chianti Classico, with Sangiovese and its sparring partners Colorino and Canaiolo. An intense ruby red wine that reveals character, clarity and precision, with fresh and spicy opening aromas of mint and crunchy red berries framed with orange nuances. The floral uniqueness of the violets and iris adds a gentle peppery touch, with an iridescent texture and structure, and a fresh progression in balance with delicious and refined tannins.
