Ormanni Canaiolo 2016/17 - Vino Biologico
From the Ormanni Estate founded in the 13th century, this is a lovely wine with ripe red berry fruit on the palate with silky tannins and a long finish. Subtle oak characteristics.
Canaiolo is an old vine variety of Etruscan origins used in Chianti for ages. Historically it can be found in the grapes variety that Baron Ricasoli adopted to produce Chianti Classico, along with Trebbiano and Malvasia and with other red vines like Colorino, aiming at softening Sangiovese’s coarse character. Canaiolo is a fine and elegant wine, with a light red ruby colour, perfumed with a peerless drinkability.
