Ormanni – Chianti Classico
The 13th Century Ormanni estate is located right in the heart of Chianti, between the towns of Poggibonsi and Castellina in Chianti. Proof of the incredible 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 itis Paolo Brini Batacchi together with 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.
The Chianti is predominently Sangiovese with 10% Canaiolo, offering elegant cherry and blueberry fruits. The Chianti Classico is selected Sangiovese fruit aged for one year in French barriques to deliver an intense black cherry, mulberry and vanilla tinged wine. Ruby red with great length and a seductive aromatic character.
