Montechiaro Primum Vinum 2017
This is the estate’s signature wine, presenting a splendid ruby color with hints of crimson, and great consistency. Full bodied and robust, with a noble bouquet of violet, marasca cherry, blackberry and raspberry, sweet spices, eucalyptus and coffee, with notes of tobacco and chocolate. It pairs well with rich, flavorful foods, wild game, and herbed cheeses. It can continue to mature in the bottle for five more years.

The Montechiaro’ s villa was built in XVII century by Bianchi Bandinelli’ s family and later the Griccioli’s family acquired it thanks to the motherly branch. The building has an imposing dimension: the front, which overlooks the big garden, is composed of two floors decorated with frames. In the middle of the front is located the main door, set within a semicircular arch. The building conserved the same appearance from the age of Romagnoli, who painted the villa with the garden and the adjacent grove. The estate also has a small neo-classical chapel. The front of the building is defined by a tympanum and columns.
