Ormanni, Chianti Classico 2016
Sangiovese 90%, Canaiolo 10%
Paola Brini Batacchi
Rustic, yet elegant and austere; smooth and fruity, yet dry. This is the nature of the Ormanni Chianti Classico, produced exclusively with indigenous grapes and in a traditional style, making it a wonderful example of this historic appellation. Elegant, medium to full bodied and well balanced with notes of wild berries and brambles, liquorice and crushed stone.
Fermentation in stainless steel tanks for 10-12 days at a controlled temperature of 27-28�C. Aged for 10-12 months in barriques or big oak barrels followed by a minimum of 4 months in the bottle
The 13th Century Ormanni estate is located in the heart of Chianti, between the towns of Poggibonsi and Castellina in Chianti. Proof of the heritage of this Tuscan property can be found in Dante Alighieri�s �Divina Commedia,� where the Ormanni family is mentioned.�For the last 200 years the estate has been owned by the Brini Batacchi family, and it is Paolo Brini Batacchi and his daughter, Paola, who run the winery today. The Ormanni property covers an area of 242 ha of land, 68 of which are vineyards�dedicated principally to the cultivation of Sangiovese. They also have two beautiful agriturismo resorts, Podere La Querce and Podere Montignano.�The Ormanni Chianti and Chianti Classico are sincere, soil-driven wines, expressive of the Barberino Val d�Elsa area, where Sangiovese takes on a brooding, austere character, while still maintaining a generous, fruity core.��
