About this wine

47 Anno Domini (Brand: Piantaferro)
Grape Variety
100% Sangiovese
Production area
Tuscany, Italy
In order to obtain the Chianti Piantaferro the traditional method has been chosen as vinification technique of the Sangiovese grapes, consisting of a maceration and fermentation process at a controlled temperature of 24-26° C, daily pumping over a period of 4 to 6 days depending on the vintage, followed by two long replacements for the following 3-4 day, continued by grape draining and pressing. Once concluded the phases of alcoholic and then malolactic fermentation autumnal decanting rites can be performed.
Intriguing red fruit and cherry hints, followed by elegant sensations of tea and spices, especially black pepper. The perfume can be defined as warm, complex and elegant.
Great start followed by a tannic acid sensation, ending with a pleasant saltiness that leaves the mouth dry; great persistence and excellent ageing potential.
Serving suggestions
