2016 Tenuta Casenuove Chianti Classico red

ID: 6210767

Tenuta Casenuove Chianti Classico is a red wine produced from the Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grape varieties. It presents itself balanced with fresh and inviting acidity, characterised by notes of black fruit and ripe tannins. On the palate, it is dry and savoury with a pleasant persistence.

Tenuta Casenuove is a historic wine estate within the comune of Panzano in Chianti at the heart of the Chianti Classico zone, covering 120 hectares of rolling hills. Vines, woodland and olive groves coexist here in a proudly rural swathe of Tuscany celebrated for its biodiversity. Acquired in 2015 by entrepreneur, art collector and wine lover Philippe Austruy, the owner of prestigious wineries in France and Portugal, it is guided by a dynamic young team of local talents who have brought renewed lustre to the wines of an estate whose soil, elevation and aspect compete and conspire in a drive for excellence.
