Wine Details

  • Type: Red

Klanis is the truly iconic wine of Dal Cero’s Tenuta di Montecchiesi winery in Cortona. The vineyards are located at an average elevation of 280 meters, with yields kept at extremely low levels.

Only the finest grapes are transferred to ferment in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. In addition, it is matured for 18 months in oak barriques and tonneaux in a climate-controlled environment. After bottling, it was given an additional ageing in bottle for another 16 months before release.

The nose releases aromas of well-ripened fruit, including blackberry, plums and blueberry, along with notes of candied fruit, dark chocolate, vanilla, and hazelnuts. At the palate, a suite of perfectly-integrated tannins is supported and balanced by a healthy but not excessive alcohol and by a well-calibrated acidity. The wine has a long and aromatic finish.
