Richer, fuller than most Chianti's - dark cherry, ripe red currants with hint of spice.
Tasting Notes: Intense ruby red colour. Aromas of red berries , blackberry with violet notes. The palate has dried cherry, orange peel and a hint of fresh cloves. Vanilla oak adds depth. Robust grainy tannins add texture to the finish.
This estate, run by the third generation of the Menichetti family, has 25 hectares under vine and is located up in the San Casciano commune. Orsumella is the name of a stream that flows through the estate’s vineyards and is said to reflect the stars of the Little Bear constellation during summer nights.
Food Match : Chianti is perfectly matched with tomato-based sauces, so it is ideal with pizza and most pasta dishes. Great also with chicken or pork, grilled cheese and ham.
