Chianti Classico is a myth of Italian Winemaking from Tuscany! 2016 is the 300th Anniversary of the most famous Italian Wine in the World, from the ancient recipe by Barone Bettino Ricasoli (1716).
Chianti Classico Le Corti by Principe Corsini has deep ruby red colour, iridescent with the classic sangiovese transparency. It has aromas of violet, cherry, red currant and raspberry jam with a slight undertone of spice, pepper, leather and walnut. Well balanced and fresh in the mouth, typical finesse and persistence of the north part of Chianti Classico with returns of citrus aromas and a touch of liquorice. Pleasant and medium bodied.
Best to be enjoyed with
The best way to pair Chianti Classico Le Corti by Principe Corsini is with grilled white meat as pork chops or a large piece of roast beef. Its naturally pairing is with the Italian T-bone "Fiorentina". Try it also with seasoned and moderately spicy cheeses like pecorino or vegetable dish like ribollita or chickpea soup. A wine to drink with your best friends, planning a trip in the Tuscan hills!
The Winery: Principe Corsini
In an archetypal “Chiantishire” countryside rises a Renaissance villa that is the home of the Principe Duccio Corsini, a cheroot-chewing connoisseur of Chianti and also a gardening expert. In contrast to the medieval origins of his family home, his world famous winemaker Carlo Ferrini helps him craft very modern wines. They display richness, depth of colour and fruit and noteworthy complexity.
