Uggiano Chianti Colli Fiorentini 2019 is made from a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon grape varietals. Located at altitudes of 250-300 metres, the vineyards of Azienda Uggiano stretch over the hillsides joining Montespertoli with Montelupo Fiorentino and San Casciano Val di Pesa. After crushing, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks using selected yeasts. The fermentation temperature is maintained at 26-28°C and the must is pumped over its skins twice a day to draw colouring substances and tannins from the skins. After 10-15 days the wine is separated from the lees to prevent solubilisation of bitter tannins. The wine is aged in big oak casks of 30/60 Hl for 6-8 months. It is then stored in stainless steel tanks until bottling and, after bottling, it rests in bottle for at least 6-8 months before being released. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Beautiful complex aromas of violets, sweet spice and dark cherries.

Palate: Fruit forward with lovely notes of black berry, dates. Elegant mid-palate with more savoury undertones.

Finish: Fine ripe tannin and lingering notes of sweet spice and plums.

The Azienda Uggiano was originally set up by a group of businessmen from Bergamo, northern Italy, with a passion for Tuscan wines and inspired by a wine expert from the French school, Giuseppe Losapio. In 1976 the vineyard expanded and settled at San Vincenzo a Torri, a beautiful location in the heart of Tuscany, nestled in the countryside in the midst of monasteries, churches and country villas. In 2015 three young partners, Giacomo Fossati, Fabio Martelli and Daniele Prosperi, took up the legacy of the founder and started driving the winery towards new, ambitious goals. Today the company, by fully embracing advanced production technologies and multi-channelling, is also robustly active in the fast expanding e-commerce sector. The company has also made a large investment in the up-and-coming Tuscan area of Maremma by launching the “Tenuta Aquilaia” winery, an enthusiastically driven and innovative wine producing operation.
