Piccini Chianti

The 2010 Piccini Chianti Classico is made from 90 percent sangiovese and 10 percent merlot. The use of merlot or other French grape varieties like cabernet sauvignon and syrah has only been permitted in Chianti Classico since 1996. Its inclusion is Piccini’s nod to modernity. Other than that, Piccini ages the wine in traditional large oak casks, bottles and ages it for a few more months and sends it to the marketplace
