Salcheto Chianti Biskero
Salcheto is named after the Salcheto stream that runs through this hilly, 21 hectare property. Located in the heart of Montepulciano, Salcheto is dedicated to Sangiovese in the clonal guise of Prugnolo Gentile: the soul of Vino Nobile. Prugnolo Gentile differs from other Sangiovese clones in Tuscany offering softer, more plum-like flavours than the usual black cherry and it really shows in this very drinkable red.
Salcheto is certified Organic. The grapes are hand harvested, treating them gently and with care. No sulphites are used in the production of this wine and native yeasts are used for fermentation. The Chianti Biskero wafts from the glass with dark red cherries, licorice, crushed flowers and spices. It is an apprachable, mid-weight Chianti best suited for drinking now or over the next 2-3 years.
