Chianti Classico PRĪMUM 2016


Chianti Classico is one of the most famous regions in Tuscany, universally appreciated for its culture, art, beautiful landscape and centuries-old food traditions.
In the heart of Chianti Classico, the wine of the same name is produced from Sangiovese del Chianti grapes.
The secret of the terroir is the perfect combination of the microclimate and the soil, the significant changes in temperature between day and night and the stony ground – conditions which make it possible to grow the grapes needed to produce truly unique wines.
We use only the best grapes for our “Prīmum” line.

In 2016, 9,000 bottles of Chianti Classico D.O.C.G. were produced.
