Melini Chianti Borghi d'Elsa 2012

Melini Chianti Borghi d'Elsa 750ML 2012   
Sku: A631735

The Melini family constructed their first winery in 1705 in Pontassieve, a village on the outskirts of Florence. Their wine was consumed locally until 1860, when Laborel Melini collaborated in developing the straw-covered glass flask (fiasco), which made it possible for wine to travel safely overseas.
