Tasting notes: The nose is intense with hints of blackberries and plums, then opens with spicy aromas of cocoa and licorice. At the palate, it is very soft, followed by a good sense of volume that fills the mouth well. Tannins are present but enveloping and warm sustained by good acidity that lets predict a good aging potential. Good persistence and length that completes the tasting leaving the mouth pleasantly dry.
About the winery: The Mancini family's winemaking history began at the end of the nineteenth century when the first cellar was built in San Polo, and with the planting of the first vineyards at Podere della Filandra. Since 1926, the winery has been committed to the production of Chianti doc, using only cement tanks. Now, Buccia Nera is organic.
