Irpide

Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG

A word in Tuscan dialect that evokes carefree childhood memories and happy times spent with grandparents. We would like this wine, made from Sangiovese grapes, to convey a little of that carefree feeling. A Chianti Colli Senesi aged in French oak, definitely worth discovering and sharing, for precious moments with friends. It can be kept for up to nine years; we recommend drinking it between three and six years after harvest.

Tasting notes

Deep red in colour, Irpide is an excellent Chianti with aromas of red berry jam and spices. Ageing in wood gives the wine a soft, slightly spicy character with elegant tannins and medium acidity. Intense, fruity aroma with notes of spices and caramel.

Pairings

To be enjoyed with red meats, game, stewed meats and mature cheeses.
