Frascole Chianti Rufina DOCG 2019

Estate: A winemaking estate for many generations, Frascole is between the Sieve and Mugello valleys in the Tuscan Appennines. The 15 hectares of vineyards are located high on the hillsides surrounded by olive groves.

Winemaking: Certified organic, vines are 20-50 years old at 400 meters in elevation. Hand harvested, 50% aged in used oak barrels for 12 months, the remainder in concrete and stainless steel, unfined, unfiltered.

Tasting Notes: Sour cherry, thyme, flinty minerality, white pepper, trace of wildflowers across a framework of grippy tannins and fresh acidity. Cherry, gilled herbs linger on the peppery finish. Straightforward, super versatile at the table.
