Iohanna – Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG

Iohanna Chianti Gran Selezione

Varietal: 100% Sangiovese

Production Area: Villa Triturris is located in the heart of Chianti Classico, close to the village of Cerbaia and of San Casciano Val di Pesa, half hour from Florence.

Terroir: Clay soil and a southern exposure at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level render a powerful and complex wine.

Vinification: The grapes are hand-picked and after a careful selection, the fermentation takes place in steel tanks at a controlled temperature for 15-20 days. This wine is produced exclusively in the best vintages.

Aging: The wine ages in big oak barrels (50hl) for at least 36 months and then rests for more than 6 months in bottle before release.

Iohanna is the highest expression of the Chianti Classico. It’s bright ruby red with garnet reflex that will increase with the aging. The bouquet is fine and persistent. Fruity notes mingles with spicy hints and th tannins are mature but delicate and improve further with the time. A very expressive wine, with great structure, complex and elegant.
