Tenuta di Sticciano Canajuolo 2016
IGT Toscano, Italy
From a pastoral region most known for Sangiovese, the indigenous Canaiolo is most often known as a bit player in the Chianti and Chianti Classico blends. Winemaker Alessio Miliotti believes in cultivation going hand-in-hand with natures’ sustainable sources. The estate is an historic 17th-century farm with a long winemaking history. Today, wines are matured in the same cellar as that of three centuries ago.
