"Conte Placido was the hero of an epic battle between two Italian provinces. For his valour, he was awarded a vast estate where winemaking soon became an important part of the culture. A nod to this heritage and legacy, Placido's collection of wines are enjoyed by families today, to be appreciated alongside your own memories and customs. Try. Share. Gather. Enjoy."
Vineyards: The historic Tuscan hills of the delimited Chianti D.O.C.G. zone. The soil varies from well-drained, calcareous to moist clay.
Winemaking: Maceration with the skins lasts for 8-12 days during primary fermentation. The grapes are pressed and a second fermentation takes place. The wine undergoes a malolactic fermentation and is then aged in temperature-controlled stainless-steel for five to six months before bottling.
Tasting Notes: Color: Ruby red. Bouquet: Intense aroma that hints of violets. Taste: Dry and well balanced with black-fruit flavors followed by a long finish.
Food Pairing: Excellent with meats, pastas and spicy foods.
