Background

Selected from the best grapes in Donna Laura's vineyards, Bramosia undergoes a temperature-controlled fermentation with frequent remontage. 10% of the wine is aged in tonneaux for 9 months and the rest sees only stainless steel tanks. 15% Merlot is added to the blend before bottling. Bramosia means "desire" in Italian and as artist Rik Olsen has illustrated on the label, the underlying theme here is romance. Bacchus and Venus make great company, but the magic begins only when Cupid strikes. He is the fundamental ingredient in any romance, just like Sangiovese is the key component in Chianti Classico.

Tasting Notes

With a deep ruby color and intense aromas of cherry and red fruit, this Chianti Classico balances ripe fruit and acidity with well-integrated accents of wood and spice. A great match with roasted meats and flavorful pastas, this wine is also delicious to sip on its own without food.
