We love Montechiaro wines because they are so talented at blending. This is no simple Chianti. A blend of 70% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo, 5% Colorino, 5% Malvasia Nera, 5% Foglia Tonda, and 5% Barsaglina in what they call "an intimate expression of the territory". This is your everyday drinking Chianti - at this price a great value for the quality and taste.
On the nose the bouquet is at once fruity, intensely vinous, and reminiscent of sweet violets and cherries.
On the palate is harmonious, dry, sapid, and mildly tannic. Over time, the flavour refines toward velvety softness

The Chianti Colli Senesi is our traditional wine that makes a intimate expression of the territory. Just behind the vineyard, planted in 2003 opens a stunning scene in which stands the Torre del Mangia, the bell tower of the Cathedral and the impressive profile of roofs and walls of the city of Siena. Also the Castle of Monteriggioni, an historic estate of the family was an invincible fortress of the ancient Republic of Siena. Our Chianti Colli Senesi is the ultimate expression of the hills around Siena and the walls of Monteriggioni. Honored by a niche production of vines without compromising quality. The best grapes of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Malvasia, Foglia Tonda and Barsaglina give birth to a red wine that is typical and as valuable as a workhorse.
