The winery Danzante elaborates this 2014 Danzante Chianti ($10.75), a red wine from Tuscany with 2014 grapes.
The grapes were harvested upon full maturation during the middle of September. The wine was vinified using an average maceration time of 8 to 10 days. Temperature was controlled (28-29°C) during the fermentation to encourage the release of attractive tannins and to develop a clear ruby color, while maintaining the rich fruit aromas characteristic of the Sangiovese grape. After fermentation, the wine was kept in stainless steel temperature controlled tanks until May.
