Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)
 
In the 13th Century the warring provinces of Florence and Siena found an original way to solve their ongoing border disputes: they agreed on a race, and when the first Rooster crowed at dawn, each city would send out its fastest rider bound for the rival city. Where the two riders met, they would mark the new provincial boundary. However, the cunning Florentines gained a head start by starving their black Rooster to make him sing earlier, weighting the outcome in favor for Florence. This is the legend behind the DOCGs Black Rooster logo.

The modern-day Chianti Classico viticultural area now covers almost all land between Sienna and Florence, buffered at each end by the Colli Fiorentini and Colli Senesi production zones. Aged in French barrels for twelve months and then in bottle for four months, this wine is an intense ruby red color. It has aromas of berries, spice and vanilla. It is very balanced with a great finish, and it matches wonderfully with grilled red meats, beef, sheep and fowl.
