Volpaia Il Puro Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2016

Year: 2016

Hot year since May with phenological phases 10 days earlier than average. The month of July was very hot (the hottest ever recorded in Italy) and dry, causing a slight water stress on the vines which favoured the start of ripening. Temperatures remained high throughout the month of August and September, but some rainy days during this period guaranteed the grapes to reach early maturation of exceptional quality.

Tasting
Color: intense ruby ​​red.
Perfume: elegant and intense with notes of vanilla, cocoa and fruit in alcohol.
Taste: wine of great structure destined to a long aging

History of wine

Il Puro - Casanova: Volpaia’s commitment to Sangiovese’s biodiversity.
As far back as 1943, Volpaia‘s Campo di Berto was populated with indigenous Sangiovese vines.
While today these vines may be considered old and short-stemmed, free from American rootstock, they represent a unique genetic heritage that survived the devastating phylloxera’s epidemic of the 1970s.
