The nose has plenty of spicy fruit including plum and cherry, with lightly meaty, savoury notes. The palate is sappy with developed, sour plum and dried fruit flavours, spice and grippy tannins. Classic Chianti - in an attractively rustic style.
Gianfranco Grati and his family own over 100 hectares of vineyards spread across 3 different estates, including Prunatelli, in the hilly Rufina zone east of Florence. This is a great source of authentic, inexpensive Chianti, in both fresh, vibrant, unoaked styles and more serious, spicy Riserva, aged 2 years in large old oak ‘botti’. The Gratis also make fine, complex Vin Santo in the traditional style as well as exceptional olive oil.
The vineyards are managed by hand pruning and harvesting.
Fermentation in stainless steel with puming over. Aged for 6 months in large oak casks before bottling.
Fine with a meaty Bolognese, meatballs and decent home-made burgers with a slab of real cheese!
