Petrognano ‘Meme’ Chianti 2017
Fattoria di Petrognano is an estate producer of Chianti in the middle of the Lucca hills. Sustainable farming, meticulous sorting, and traditional winemaking methods define Petrognano as a traditional Chianti producer. The Chianti ‘Meme’ is the flagship wine of the estate, made from 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo grown in clay soils at an altitude of 250-300 meters above sea level. Southern exposure ensures consistent ripeness between vintages while the stainless steel aging produces a wine that is fresh and enjoyable in its youth. Tart red strawberries lead into a bouquet of flowers, dried herbs, and exotic spices. A crisp finish makes this an ideal pairing for tomato sauce.
