[ Balsamic / Floral / Fruity / Spicy ]


Chianti Montalbano DOCG

We are in the land of Leonardo Da Vinci, on the splendid hills of Montalbano, rich in marine fossils that bestow exceptional freshness and flavor to the wine. Risalto features a bright ruby red color and a floral and fruity aroma, with hints of violet and cherry combined with spicy sensations of vanilla and cocoa. On the palate, spices, underbrush and balsamic hints are supported by a warm and robust sip.
