Fratelli Chenin Sauvignon

  • |
  • 4 /5

Fresh aromas of melon and guava with a hint of lemongrass, the mouth explodes with fresh clean acidity.

Three sets of brothers from Italy and India (Fratelli means Brothers in Italian) nurtured the desire to create a product made in India following Italian traditions which would meet international standards.

Their passion, love and labour has resulted in the birth of Fratelli Wines, a modern winery located in Akluj, in the Solapur district, about 170 kms south of Pune.

The vineyards, planted with 13 different grape varieties imported from France, have been nurtured and tended to for four long years before the grapes harvested were used to make their very first wines.

The viticultural and wine-making expertise has been provided by Piero Masi, a master wine-maker from Tuscany, and creator of the famous ‘Chianti Classico Casa Sola'.
