The flagship wine of the zone from which it comes, and the maximum expression of that zone’s particular features, the label proudly bears the Zingarelli name in order to highlight the strong link that the family has with the Chianti Classico area.
90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes combine to create this ruby-red wine with its aroma of blackcurrant and marasca cherries, with notes of Peruvian pepper and sweet spices.
Its equilibrium makes it a suitable accompaniment for a range of dishes, but it is also a great match for a good seasoned cheese.
