Chianti d.o.c.g. is now a bright ruby red coloured wine, tending towards garnet with age. It has a harmonious, dry, savoury and slightly tannic flavour, with an intensely vinous aroma, sometimes with scents of violet. Some types of Chianti can be served when young, fresh and pleasant on the palate, but the vocation of certain areas for producing wines ideal for medium/long ageing, which mature unmistakable colour, bouquet and flavour is also well known. Moreover, soft pressing, fermentation at the right temperatures, evolution in fine wood and ageing in glass, convey personality to the wine: more gentle and smooth in terms of flavour, more complex in the bouquet and more intense in colour.
