More information

The Chianti Classico DOCG by Borgo Salcetino impresses with an intense garnet colour, the bouquet is expressive and reminiscent of cherries and raspberries; the taste is fruity, full, with good structure and strong, round, velvety tannins.

"The Chianti Classico is undoubtedly one of the best in its class. In addition, it is a complicated vintage especially for the Chianti Classico, but the interpretation provided by Borgo Salcetino has hit the mark. Essential, refined fragrance with red berries, a light hint of spice and notes of undergrowth. On the palate beautifully balanced and pleasantly annoying progression. "3 glasses, Gambero Rosso 2017

Vinification of Borgo Salcetino Chianti Classico DOCG

The Sangiovese (95%) and Canaiolo (5%) grape varieties are grown on clay and sandy soil in the vineyards of the municipality of Radda in Chianti. The harvest is carried out by hand. The mashing on the shells is carried out for 18 days at a controlled temperature of 23° C. This is followed by malolactic fermentation, which takes place 70% in wooden barrels and 30% in steel tanks. Then the Borgo Salcetino Chianti Classico stays in the wooden barrel for another 12 months. Only then will the bottling take place and another time in the bottle before this wonderful Chianti wine from Tuscany comes on the market.
