Chianti Classico D.O.C.G. Ormanni 2019
From the vineyards owned by Tenuta Ormanni, located between Poggibonsi and Siena, the grapes are harvested for this traditional classic Chianti that ages for 10-12 months in barrique, partly in large barrels.
The classic Ormanni chianti with its aging in oak barrels is ruby red with fruity, rich and enveloping notes. The taste is elegant, moderately structured and well balanced. A red wine of absolute tradition, finely expressed in the tannic part of the Sangiovese.
The historic Ormanni estate is under family ownership since 1818, when Vincenzo Brini took possession of the land. The notary Giovacchino Bacci in Florence made the formal purchase order in January 1819. As with local tradition, Ormanni continued a whole crop: wine, oil, cereals, firewood and alcohol (from corbezzole). In 1924 a consortium was established for the defense of the typical Chianti wine, to which the estate adheres under the guide of Vincenzo Brini and his nephew Francesco, father of the current owner Ing. Paolo Brini. Ever since the early sixties, the modern vision of the company has led to a gradual abandonment of mixed and promiscuous crops to go to specialized vineyards and olive groves, and the contemporaneous abandonment of 'halftone' forms for more effective direct management. The Ormanni estate offers the finest Chianti, Chianti Classics and Riserva, appreciated by the enthusiasts and also pleasurable for the neophytes.
