Fattore Crelio
(case of 6)

111,00 

Villa Cosmiana’s Chianti is more refined and sophisticated than a traditional Chianti; it is produced from carefully selected Sangiovese grapes enriched by Merlot and Cabernet Franc and vinified in stainless tanks. It shows a deep glamorous grenat robe and is fresh and velvety in the mouth; it displays powerful crushed cherry perfumes and flavours with a touch of liquorice.

Description

Fattore CrelioCrelio Petrolini

Crelio Petrolini (1928-1979) was the last ‘fattore’ or estate manager whilst still in the ownership of the Princess Antinori-Aldobrandini. Recruited directly by Prince Clemente Aldobrandini before he could finish high school and in spite of the difficulties of the time, he led and oversaw the villa, park and farms maintaining them to the standards of excellence established by Duke Amerigo Antinori and his daughter Princess Maria Antinori-Aldobrandini for over 30 years.

His name, Crelio, has been given as a tribute to a typical Chianti-style wine where the rusticity of traditional Tuscan Sangiovese is refined with a touch of Merlot harvested from the estate.
