Located in the heart of Chianti Classico, on a hill that rises about 450 metres above sea level with a wonderful exposure to the sun, hence the name: SOLATIONE

The estate covers 14 hectares of land, of which 6 are planted with vines. The soil has an important structure with 65% of pure Alberese, a considerable skeleton of calcareous rock that particularly enhances the structure and minerality of the wines produced. The mixture of mineral substance gives colour, brilliance and secondary aromas that are characteristic of this structure.

Colour: Deep brilliant ruby red

Aromas: Intense dark berries aroma with hints of vanilla, wild violet and plum

Taste: in the palate it is well structured with fine tannins and a rich aftertaste. Its great complexity and characteristic acidity make it perfect for long ageing in the bottle

Food pairing: aged cheese, roasted or stewed meat, game.
