PRODUCT SHEET

Chianti Classico territory is a land of ancient wine-producing traditions that date back to Etruscan times. The name “Clante, in fact, derives from an Etruscan family name, common in the area. An IGT(Indicazione Geografica Tipica) produced entirely from Montecchio vineyards, is a tribute to our ancestors as it evokes the taste of history. Balance and elegance, together with a refined aromatic flavour are the prevalent characteristics of this wine. Its colour is a bright ruby red – a crescendo of sensations to the nose and mouth.
A mellow taste, majestic, full-bodied but not over-powering.
Perfectly balanced. A lingering finish.
