L’aura – Chianti Classico DOCG (Sangiovese 100%) This is their premier wine, bottled for the first time in 1998. Jacopo and Filippo Di Battista dedicated this wine to their mother, Laura. The name is written in the apostrophized manner of Petrarch’s “Canzoniere” who called his muse Lady Laura, a perennial subject of unrequited love, in order to hide her identity and not draw the ire of her jealous husband. The illustration on the label is a drawing made by Jacopo’s grandmother in the 1930s of a decorative plate that had an angel holding flowers – which eventually became the company’s logo.

GrapeSangiovese
Tasting NotesThe nose is fresh and floral with red fruit overtones. The red fruit carries over to the palate with medium tannins and a balanced acidity.
