Chianti Classico DOCG Gran Selezione Renzo Marinai
It is a 100% Sangiovese with an intense and brilliant red colour, delicate, elegant, harmonious, with a remarkable body and very persistent character, a wine of great substance and surprising complexity. A wine for great ageing.
Renzo Marinai’s estate is named after the nearby ancient church of San Martino. Renzo Marinai himself took over the estate in 1996 and, with the support of oenologist Giovanni Cappelli, completely reorganised its operations, converting it into an entirely organic farm. The estate covers about 33 hectares; just over eight are planted with vines. The terrain is undulating, rising and falling between 350 and 500 metres above sea level. The soil is marly, perfect for Sangiovese, allowing good drainage and the development of deep roots.
