Chianti Riserva DOCG

18,00

Our Chianti Riserva comes from the best grapes of our DOCG Chianti area vineyards. The Chianti Riserva differs from our Chianti DOCG in that it is produced only from the highest level grapes and, during the whole processing, it is subject to very strict controls from the time of harvesting, through fermentation, to the ageing in oak barrels, where it must age for a minimum of 14 months. Once it is bottled it is required by law to age for a minimum of 4 months before selling.  The result is a robust, complex wine, with an intense red colour, high structured tannins, married with intense fruit, vanilla and spicy aromas.

Description

Wine characteristics

Chianti has a viticultural and enological tradition that was born in the early eighteenth century. Our Chianti DOCG follows this recipe to which we add a percentage of Colorino that gives it the ruby ​​color. Our Chianti ages for at least six months in oak barrels and for another six months in bottle. The result is a robust, complex wine, with an intense red colour, high structured tannins, married with intense fruit, vanilla and spicy aromas. The mixture with small percentages of other grapes such as Canaiolo and Ciliegiolo increases its intriguing complexity.

Grapes

75% Sangiovese, 15% Canaiolo,, and up to 10% Merlot.
