Tasting Notes

Terre di Prenzano is a single-vineyard, traditionally-made, all-Sangiovese Chianti Classico from Vignamaggio. All grapes are organically farmed (and starting with the 2018 vintage, Terre di Prenzano is officially certified organic).

It is a gorgeous wine and an even better value. It offers tart red cheery notes typical of Sangiovese, with a slight floral note. Medium-bodied and dry, with high acidity that makes it the perfect accompaniment to cold cut appetizers, pasta dishes, red meats and aged cheese.

Terre di Prenzano is Vignamaggio’s Chianti Classico ‘Annata’, that is at the base of the Chianti Classico pyramid of quality, requiring a minimum of 12 months of wood ageing.
