Chianti Classico DOCG 2020 - La Sala del Torriano
Alberese Limestone, Galestro and Red Clay
La Sala estates are part of the property known as Grande Terra Murata, they were part of the estates of the noble Giandonati family; at the beginning of the 15th century the lands passed to the Acciaiuoli family, in 1534 to the Grand Duke Alessandro de' Medici and finally to the Corsini family. From 1981 to 2014 the estate belonged to Laura Baronti who, together with the oenologist Gabriella Taninegli years 1990 and early 2000 has helped to make La Sala a company of excellence in Chianti Classico. In 2014 Francesco Rossi Ferrini buys La Sala, concluding an important agronomic project, started in 1941, with the ownership of Torriano, now also a beautiful farmhouse, which boasts beautiful vineyards of Sangiovese and Merlot and olive groves in the area of Montefiridolfi. Today the winery has an extension of more than 70 hectares, all within the Chianti Classico area, of which 32 hectares are vineyards and about 40 hectares are olive trees and woods, all vineyards are located between 150 m asl and 350 m asl. Soon after the purchase of Sala, Francesco started a very important work of modernization in the winery and in the vineyard, converting the winery to organic farming and not only. The final goals are sustainability, and the achievement of product quality while respecting the land and natural biodiversity.
Chianti Classico DOCG from the La Sala del Torriano winery is a surprisingly intense and inviting Tuscan wine of high quality closely linked to the Chianti region.
It has a bouquet of ripe red berries, plum, bergamot zest and floral hints, violet and elder.
In the mouth it is rotund and crisp, with harmony it brings back to the palate all those typical aromas of Sangiovese appreciated by the nose.
Intense and easy to drink at the same time. The finish is soft and pleasant thanks to a mature and delicate tannin, without any sharpness.
