Arillo in Terrabianca Chianti Classico Riserva “Poggio Croce” DOCG
100% Sangiovese. Brilliant ruby red with notes of violet and red berries, such as cherry and red currant; hints of black tea, vanilla and white pepper add complexity to the wine. The palate has smooth tannins, which are supported by nice acidity, guaranteeing freshness and longevity.
“From carefully selected Sangiovese grapes, produced as a tribute to Terrabianca’s original historic label “Croce.” The Burkards were inspired to reinterpret this Tuscan classic, turning it into a premium wine with unmistakable style. It is a delicate, decisive and elegant wine.”
