Description

Winemaker Notes: 
Located north of the village of Greve in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, the Nozzole estate covers a striking, rugged, mountainous area of about 1,000 acres, a third of which is vines and olive groves. At 350 meters in elevation, the 10-acre Il Pareto vineyard has clay soil with lime and gravel-size stones. The soil composition is ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon, with a high proportion of galestro rock. Il Pareto grapes are manually harvested, destemmed and crushed before fermentation and malolactic fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Maceration on the lees promotes the extraction of optimal color and fine, structured tannins. The wine is aged in oak and in bottle before release.

94    James Suckling
This is a big, powerful cabernet sauvignon with a traditional, intense tannin backbone to the currant and blackberry character with chocolate undertones. Muscular is a word that comes to mind. Needs at least three to four years to come around. Reminds me of a Nozzole from the 1990s. (Jul 2020)
