Sole di Streda Belvedere Chianti Superiore Docg
This wine from the most long-lived and less productive Sangiovese vines of the property, from which we obtain excellent quality grapes, is the result of a more restrictive specification of the Chianti municipality and is a well-structured wine, excellent even after a few years of aging in bottle .
Ruby red in color, with intense aromas of red fruits, violet flowers. The taste is very balanced, with notes of sweet tannin and good acidity, elegant and juicy.
Excellent for pairing starters of land and meats, but also with salads and medium-aged cheeses.
