Pio II Chianti DOCG is made from 100% Sangiovese grapes and is aged for a maximum of 6 months in large Slavonian oak barrels. This is done to preserve the freshness and bouquet of the fruit while softening and refining the tannins. It has a bright red color tending towards purple due to the ageing. A dry, harmonic, full flavored, slightly tannic taste that evolves with age and becomes smooth and velvety. The balance brings out its aromas and fruitiness. A perfect pairing with typical Tuscan cuisine such as handmade pasta, polenta, cured meats, aged cheese and game or red meat.
