WE CHOSE IT BECAUSE
Canaiolo Nero is a very distinctive grape but one that can bewitch at first taste
Notoriously, Canaiolo Nero is a grape that is used for prestigious blends, one above all that of Chianti, and rarely allows itself to be appreciated on its own. With “Tindilloro,” Alessandro Bandinelli wants to step outside the box and unleash the full potential of this historic Tuscan grape variety. After manual harvesting on the Chianti hills at an altitude of 150 meters above sea level, always respecting the principles of biodynamic cultivation, the fermentation and aging of “Tindilloro” takes place in small cement vats and in a completely natural way.
Its deep red color mirrors its aromas.
The aromas are persistent and the characteristic herbaceous note of Canaiolo Nero is well present.
The taste is soft and fresh at the same time, with tannins present but graceful; the contrasts make it intriguing and enhance its main characteristics.
At the table “Tindilloro” is suitable to accompany risottos and white meats of all kinds, but thanks to its aroma also salami and cheeses such as pecorino and gorgonzola. The potential of “Tindilloro” can be fully appreciated if served at a white wine temperature: 12 or at most 14°C!
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in saying that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it brings to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason, our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
