Drink now through 2028. No need to decant before serving.

This historic Chianti estate is set in the southern part of the region and has been in the Martini di Cigala family since 1914. Over the years the family have been guardians of the traditional Chianti Classico style even as other local wineries embraced more modern international winemaking approaches. Today their Chianti Classico is a regular favourite with wine critics and the 2016 vintage was ranked third in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2019.

In the vineyard the estate follows organic agricultural practices to produce top quality fruit and harvests by hand at optimum maturity. Their Chianti Classico is predominantly Sangiovese with a small amount of Canaiolo. The young wine ages in a combination of large oak casks and 500 litre tonneaux for 10-12 months before bottling and release.

The San Giusto a Rentennano style is refined and elegant with well-built structure and firm tannins held in place by a fresh acidity. On the nose red cherry and plum are complemented by dried herbs and licorice while the first sip reveals a medium body, smooth texture and long spiced finish. A great Chianti to add to the cellar or enjoy now with venison, roast beef or a hearty ragu served with fresh pasta.
