Each area of Chianti has specific characteristics linked to the microclimate and soil qualities; Tribolotto is a Chianti Colli Senesi wine made in the area of the province of Siena that is part of Chianti. Our soils are characterised by a marked minerality and this is why we always choose to age our Chianti Colli Senesi Tribolotto in steel tanks for between four and twelve months. A wine with a light and perfumed structure, definitely worth sharing.
Its colour always has beautiful ruby hues with violet highlights. Its aromas of violet, cherry and blackberry immediately remind us of its main grape variety: Sangiovese.
Also excellent after a few years spent ageing in the bottle
A wine to be enjoyed with pasta and red meats, especially typical Tuscan charcuterie and medium-mature cheeses.
