Grape varieties, a blend of Sangiovese and Canaiole Nero
Soft and flavoursome wine with good depth, soft fruit and easy tannins on the finish. This winery aims to produce modern style wines that are easy to drink.
Duca di Sasseta Chianti is produced by a family firm in the beautiful south eastern corner of Tuscany - in the district known as 'Colli Senesi' (the hills of Siena) - near the town of Montepulciano, the home of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Some of their best vineyards are within the latter appellation, the rest lying in the rolling hills below the imposing Monte Cetona Mountain. The EGT winery was founded in 1978 and is now a dynamic modern winery which exports all over the world. A continuing programme of investment in equipment, space and above all - people - is the secret behind the impressive improvement in quality, value-for-money and consequent rapid growth in the last few years. It is led by Marco Barbanera.
