Dofana Chianti Classico DOCG
From 6 hectares in Chianti Classico, southeastern exposure, 984 feet (300 meters) above sea level, excellent and characteristic day/night temperature swings. The one-of-a-kind Galestro soil, rich sandy clay with skeleton grain, soil remains cool, because of the presence of clay.
Dofana offers great structure, rich, rounder tannins and riper fruit aromas, especially red berries, cherry, blackberry and currant. It fully represents Gioia and Filippo’s signature style, their rendition of one of Tuscany’s most historic wines.
