Hesychasmos, from esychia, calm peace, absence of worry) is an ascetic doctrine and practice widespread among monks in the Christian East since the time of the Desert Fathers (4th century). A practice still widespread in the Orthodox world and in particular by the monks of Mount Athos. Esichia is search for inner peace, in union with God and in harmony with the Creation Wine ChiantiRiserva, made from more than 80% Sangiovese grapes and other international vines permitted by theproduction regulations. Ruby red in colour, tending to garnet and aged five years at least. Deep and intense on the nose withdelicate notes of underbrush (blueberry, black cherry, morello cherry), complemented by pleasant floralscents. In the mouth it is enveloping, gritty and savoury with silky and elegant tannins. The finish isvibrant and very long.
