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 into 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. It is 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.
