Melini

The Melini winery in Gaggiano is situated 300 metres above sea level on the Chianti Classico hills along the road from Poggibonsi to Castellina in Chianti. Here, between 1970 and 1974, alongside an original building complex constructed in the 1950s and 1960s, a modern winery with four floors was built into the side of a hill. It was designed for the separate vinification of parcels from single vineyards (the cru concept). All vinification phases, from drying in the loft to aging in barrels and bottling are performed using specific techniques and following the philosophy of quality.

Melini has a longstanding tradition dating back to 1705, the year it was established, which is strongly rooted in the region of Tuscany and focused on developing Chianti.

Tasting Notes 

This wine is garnet-ruby red in colour with orange highlights and has rich, complex, ethereal aromas of great elegance dominated by notes of pipe tobacco and spice with faint fruity nuances. The flavour is full and warm with an aristocratic liquorice finish that is long and lasting.

Un rosso importante, caratterizzato da una struttura potente ma allo stesso tempo morbida, al palato si presenta pieno e armonioso. Maturato in legno per 2 anni e affinato alcuni mesi in bottiglia, si presta ad un lungo invecchiamento.

Tasting Notes 

Ruby red in colour; an intense and complex aroma, with strong fruity notes (of mixed berries and ripe grapes) and elegant touches of vanilla, irises and sweet violets; a strong, well-defined and pleasant flavour, which is smooth but well-structured, with a distinct aftertaste of preserves and almonds.

Ha colore rosso rubino; profumo intenso e complesso, con note fruttate dominanti (frutti di bosco e uva matura) e con eleganti sentori di vaniglia, giaggiolo e mammola; sapore deciso franco e piacevole, morbido ma ben sostenuto, con netto fondo di confettura e di mandorla.

Tasting Notes 

The colour is an intense and vivid ruby red while the perfume is enveloping and complex with marked notes of mature fruit (morello cherry and raspberry) and pleasant floral scents (iris, violet); the flavour is full-bodied, smooth and fruity, keen and harmonious. After careful selection, some of the grapes are allowed to raisin. A painstaking control of the drying stage allows to obtain perfectly integral and rich in sugar bunches. At the same time, batches of wine that has just been drawn off are selected and the previously raisined grapes are added to this. This slow refermentation springs from the rediscovery and exaltation of a practice rich in history and territory: Governo all’Uso Toscano
