Castello di Strozzavolpe


Chianti Classico
DOCG Riserva

Ruby red color with garnet-like reflections. Bold and seductive bouquet, intensified by the constant variation of high temperatures during the day and low temperatures at night. Aromas of violets and ripe cherry intertwine with the sweet vanilla notes of the wood, transmitting a pleasant sensation of warmth to the palate. The flavor is elegant and enveloping, with a long and persistent finish.

The label represents the fox, symbol of the castle, which was filled with gold in order to guarantee both it and the castle’s long existence and prosperity.
