Zonin Chianti DOCG 12.5% 75cl 2020
VINIFICATION AND AGEING
The stems are separated from the grapes, which are softly pressed in cylinders under pressure gently breaking their skins and releasing the juice. The juice is left to macerate on the skins for about a week in temperature controlled stainless steel vinifiers at a temperature of about 28-30°C. After the alcoholic fermentation is over, the wine undergoes also the malolactic fermentation, a process that lowers total acidity and makes wines seem rounder and fuller in flavour.
Bright ruby-red colour of an attractive intensity. In its youth, it is richly marked by violet refl ections that tend to become garnet with age.
Characteristically intensify ne and elegant and distinguished by an elegant scent of violets and tenuous perfumes of wild berries.
Dry, full, properly balanced and extremely enticing with lingering acidity and fl avors of cherry and spice.
Best if served at 18° C. (64°.F.).
When it is young, the wine combines well with the hearty flavors of country cooking and it can be consumed throughout such meals. After the third year, it becomes the ideal companion of every type of roast, grilled red meat, game and cheeses aged at moderate length.
