Full-bodied and tannic with a good tarry, black fruit grip on the palate. Savoury and meaty. Give it some cellar time then decant 2 hours with a hearty meat dish. Good value. Chianti Classico food pairings: medallions of veal, grilled sausage, roast chicken.

The Fizzano estate is not just an ideal terroir for grape vines, it is also home to many olive trees, of which the olive oil has received DO Organic certification. The wine is rich and full of dark fruits with a hint of game, but on the palate the freshness of tart cherries comes alive, while the velvet tannins hug your mouth. A great showing of Chianti Classico, ideal with pasta tossed in pesto and some of that delicious Rocca Delle Macie olive oil.
