TENUTA SANT'ALFONSO

CHIANTI CLASSICO DOCG

One of the winery’s two prestigious and historic Crus. The higher clay

Chianti Classico Tenuta Sant’Alfonso is fermented using the
most advanced techniques to preserve the grapes’ natural
concentration and is subsequently transferred to French oak

around one year. Follows a period in the bottle before being
released.

of ripe red fruit and spices.

smoothness with a good balance of tannins.
