THE WINE

Tasting: The colour and aromas of La Forra are a true representation of the historic town of Greve, the capital of the Florentine Chianti Classico area. The red, ripe, fleshy fruit of macerated Morello cherries complement delicate tertiary nuances.

The taste is rich, elegant, deep and lingering, distinguished by delicate but noticeable tannin.

At the table: At “Villa di Nozzole” we like to serve it with pigeon stuffed with black truffle accompanied by spring onions and carrots glazed with balsamic vinegar.

First vintage: 1980

Shelf Life: up to ten years Interesting fact:

La Forra is the result of an old massal selection of autochthonous clones in a mixed ecosystem composed of a vineyard, olive grove and orchard dating back to the 1950s.
