- Tasting Notes
Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG
Sangiovese 87%, Merlot 15%
Poderi del Paradiso, owned by the Cetti family since the 13th century, is an amphitheatre of vineyards at the base of the medieval Tuscan town of San Gimignano, known for its skyscraper-like towers built during the Renaissance. Here the Cetti family farms about 30 hectares of vines, and with the help of renowned winemaker Paolo Caciorgna craft classic Chianti vintage after vintage.
This wine is an example of that, a perfect food pairing Chianti from the optimal 2020 vintage.
This organic Chianti Colli Senesi is a classic expression of Sangiovese showcasing everything that is so good about quality Chianti wine. This is an easy going versitle wine which combines the freshness and tannins of Sangiovese with the smoothness and fruitiness of Merlot.
Ruby red, with lovely cherry aromas and hints of wild herbs and a touch of oak. Smooth and supple on the palate; medium to full bodied. Grippy with slightly rustic tannins and dry mineral earthen spice notes, leather, and cocoa. A harmonious and persistent finish.
A great wine to pair with a variety of dishes from pizza and pasta to meat dishes and cheeses.
