San Martino

Villla Cafaggio’s San Martino is of an intense garnet colour and has a bouquet with notes of mulberries and raspberries. Full on the palate, there are notes of black bilberries, with a complex roasted flavour and very soft tannins. The finish is very lingering and intense.

The grapes used in the production of this Super Tuscan are destemmed and delicately crushed to minimize damage to the skin. Maximum extraction of colour and tannin is very important and fermentation is encouraged through the addition of selected yeasts. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in wooden vats at controlled temperatures not exceeding 30°C. The wine is left in contact with the skin for 3 weeks and malolactic fermentation takes place exclusively in barriques, helping to define the wine’s structure and balance.

The Villa Cafaggio Cortaccio is a wine of extraordinary quality with a garnet colour, an intense aroma reminiscent of blackcurrants and a perfectly blended roasted character. The palate is concentrated, with extremely well balanced tannins and the finish is very long.

The grapes are destemmed and delicately crushed so as to not damage the rich and highly coloured skins. Selected yeasts are added to the must to activate fermentation whilst the wine remains in contact with the skins for 3 weeks. After the initial fermentation, the Cortaccio is transferred to an area used exclusively for malolactic fermentation, which takes place entirely in French oak barriques, leading to the creation of a beautifully structured and balanced wine.

The Villa Cafaggio Chianti Classico has a very intense ruby red colour. It has an intense fruity aroma with spicy notes and a full concentrated palate, with a very pleasant finish.

The grapes are destemmed and delicately crushed to minimize damage to the skin. The must is combined with selected yeasts and pectolytic enzymes that trigger off fermentation that then takes place in steel vats at a maximum temperature of 30°C. During fermentation the wine is frequently pumped over to optimize extraction of colour and polyphenols. The wine remains in contact with the skin for 15-20 days before it is drawn off.

The Chianti Classico Riserva has an intense ruby red colour. The bouquet is dominated by mature fruity notes, reminiscent of black bilberries. It has a full, concentrated and intense flavour. On the palate there is a very pleasant flavour of mature cherries, which lingers for a long time, with sweet tannins that blend in perfectly with the structure of the wine.
The grapes are destemmed and delicately crushed to minimize damage to the skin, optimizing extraction of the colour and the soft tannins.
