Description

The boutique winery Nittardi lies between Castellina and Panzano in the heart of the Chianti Classico region.  Nittardi was first mentioned as “Nectar Dei”  in 1183.   In the 16th century, the winery belonged to Michelangelo Buonarroti, who produced his own wine here.  Belcanto is the fitting name for Nittardi‘s newest composition. The label refers to the history and terroir of the wine: eight pebbles in the colours of the gray galestro soil and the typically red colour tone of Chianti Classico– like the eight notes of the scale and the eight grape varietalsof Belcanto.

With an elegant ruby-red colour, juicy cherry, raspberry and spicy aromas and a hints of Mediterranean herbs this Medium bodied Chianti has grippy tannins on the palate and a fresh and velvety finish.

Excellently suited to Tuscan appetizers and Charcuterie as well as Pasta Dishes and Soft Cheese
