Il Puro is Italian for “The Pure.” The 2006 vintage is the premier release of this pure, elegant wine that is 100% Sangiovese, 100% indigenous clones, 100% organic, 100% Chianti Classico, zero emissions of CO2. Il Puro demonstrates how the vinification of a pure Sangiovese in the Chianti Classico produces the truest and most authentic representation of the terroir.
“The 2006 Chianti Classico Casanova Il Puro is a single-vineyard wine from the Casanova vineyard. I don’t think Volpaia has really tuned this wine in just yet. The Puro is dominated by wild, gamey notes and excessive toast from the 100% new French oak barrels, both of which detract considerably from the impressively, rich fruit. The Puro remains a work in progress.”
