The Chianti produced by Salcheto winery is an intense red wine suitable for everyday use, its versatility and its great balance see it alongside the best traditional Tuscan dishes. Daily wine, ready to drink, based on Sangiovese, mainly present in the blend (85%), Canaiolo, Merlot and Mammolo, is completed with an aging of a part of the mass in "tonneaux" 300 lt American oak. Particular characteristic for the excellent Sienese wine concerns the timing and timeliness in the processing of grapes. Since the month of June, the wine year has been marked by high temperature peaks accompanied by intense brightness, capable of destabilizing the overall balance of the plant and its ability to ripen fruits. Great attention was once again placed on the selections at the tables of choice even if the vines have shown, on the whole, an impressive ability to adapt to this new and complex climate scenario. The result is in fact a wine of incredible intensity of color and good structure. The first vintage of production was that of 1997.
