Sacello Chianti Classico DOCG
100% Sangiovese. Ruby red color. The nose displays hints of black cherry, iris and subtle notes of violet. The soft tannins are balanced by a nice minerality.
“Sacello is our Chianti Classico with a pure Sangiovese soul. It is a clear expression of the unique vineyards at Terrabianca. Sacello comes from the Latin word sacellum, which is a small shrine, a diminutive of sacrum meaning “belonging to a God.” The name of the wine is a tribute to the 12th century chapel in the heart of our vineyards.”
