Terrarossa Chianti Classico DOCG 2013

Fattorie Melini

The Fattorie Melini Terrarossa Chianti Classico takes its name from the Terrarossa estate, located next to a picturesque village in the heart of Chianti Classico.

Terroir: Fattorie Melini Terrarossa is sourced from within the Sienese region of the Chianti Classico DOC from hillside vineyards surrounding the village of Castellina. These hillside vineyards sit between 900-1,200 feet in elevation and are made up of varied soils of alberese, marl, clay and gravel.

Vinification: Grapes are hand-picked in early October and transported to the winery. Maceration takes place for 15 days in temperature controlled tank followed by 12 months in French oak and a minimum of 3 months aging in bottle prior to release.

Additional Information

Bright ruby-red. The bouquet is vinous and fragrant with violets and iris scents and hints of vanilla. The taste is dry, fine and full, pleasantly fruity with an elegant aftertaste of raspberries and almonds.

    Balanced and expressive, this red exhibits cherry, almond, tobacco and earth flavors, supported by a dense matrix of tannins. Remains fresh and vibrant on the lingering aftertaste. Drink now through 2023.
