Nestled in the hills above Panzano in Chianti you will find Fattoria Rignana. The wines have now received their official bio certification with organic methods being used throughout the whole commune of Panzano In Chianti. As you’d expect from a Tuscan producer, Sangiovese is the predominant grape grown, followed by Canaiolo, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Wines are made with respect to the Chianti region and it is this along with the whole of the Panzano commune that has pushed Cosimo to convert to organic production (official certification in 2014).
The Fattoria Rignana Chianti Classico is 85% Sangiovese and 15% Canaiolo grown on limestone and shale. The wine spends 12 months in 3rd use oak barriques. This is classically styled with intense aromas of cherry and blackcurrant. The wine has soft and fresh tannins with a long finish. Excellent with some charcuterie or a simple pasta dish.
