Tenuta Cantagallo Chianti Montalbano Riserva DOCG

Tenuta Cantagallo has been owned by the Pierazzuoli family since 1970 and covers 200 hectares of vineyards, olive groves and woods on the rolling Tuscan hills between Florence and Vinci.
The pride of the estate is the production of Chianti Montalbano DOCG and Riserva.
The Chianti Montalbano Reserva is made from the best Sangiovese grapes of the estate’s vineyards and ages for a minimum of 12 months in medium-aged Allier oak casks. This Tuscan red wine is fine and elegant, on the nose it expresses all the characteristics of Sangiovese with spicy and forest fruits.
The selection of the grapes is the first secret of the Chianti Cantagallo, so much that as mentioned in the label and written in the cork is made “a bottle for each strain” (“Una bottiglia di vino per ogni ceppo di vite”).
