Banfi Chianti Classico embodies all the characteristics that have made this wine an enduring classic: an alluring bouquet of black fruit and violets; rich flavors of cherry and leather; supple tannins and good acidity for dining. Fermentation takes place with a traditional skin contact of 8 to 10 days. Aging in French oak barriques for 7 months follows. Bottling is carried out in the summer following the harvest.

Banfi Chianti Classico is the perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of foods, including red-sauced pastas, grilled meats, and roasts.

Region Description

The best wines from this noble grape come from Tuscany, particularly in the Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti districts, although it is gaining in popularity in California. Sangiovese grapes make wine that is medium to high in acidity and firm in tannin; the wines can be light to full-bodied depending on where the grapes are grown. The aromas and flavors are fruity, often of a cherry-like quality. Hints of violets or a nutty character can also be present.
