There's nothing like quite like traditional Chianti Classico. The strong predominance of Sangiovese makes Borgo Pretale Le Crete a real Chianti that delivers the pure essence of this appellation — it will take you back to Tuscany. Borgo Pretale is 80% Sangiovese, which gives the wine its body, bouquet and strength. Small quantities of Canaiolo and Ciliegiolo round out the blend and soften the character of Sangiovese.
The resulting wine is deep ruby-red with purple highlights and a nose bursting with well-defined blackberry, plum and violet aromas. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, crisp and lively with fine tannins and a long delicious finish. It is perfect with pasta dishes with red sauce, grilled meat and aged cheeses.
