CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA
This is a "top cuvée" made in limited quantities and only in the best years using select fruit from the estate vineyards.
Fermentation for the Sangiovese is with specially selected yeasts and maceration takes place in temperature controlled cement vats. The wine spends 12 months in French barriques before being blended. The Cabernet Sauvignon is vinified separately in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats and is then racked in French barriques, of which half are new, before being assembled with the Sangiovese.
Having been partially aged in one-to two-year-old barriques, the wine shows depth of flavours and complexity in its aromas. Characterized by an intense nose of black cherries and brambles, along with spicy vanilla and a rich fruit texture. A wine with impeccable balance. Full-bodied, sumptuous and complex with velvety tannins that will get even finer with age.
