Winemaking Notes: Il Garrulo Chianti Colli Senesi is produced from the two red grapes and the two white grapes specified in the old Chianti regulations, after the formula developed by Barone Ricasoli. The grapes ferment on the skins with a long maceration in glass-lined concrete tanks. Refinement occurs in glass-lined cement tanks. Wine is aged for 12 months.

Tasting Notes: Il Garrulo is a savory wine with a rich nose and juicy red fruit. The wine has grip; it's young and has a long life ahead. It is named after the the Garrulus bird found on the property.

Food Pairings: This wine is perfect with tomatoes and thus ideal with many Mediterranean dishes. Try it with barbecues: grilled fish, meats, or vegetables. It is a wine for every occasion, light on the palate and pleasant to drink.

Chianti 2019 Vintage Notes by Wine Spectator 10/31/2022: "95pts - More rain in May and July than on the coast resulted in fresh, balanced reds with finesse and the structure to age."
