ESSENZA DI TOSCANACHIANTI CLASSICO DOCG RISERVA
Careful choice of the most suitable grapes, slow ageing in the cellar, and bottle maturation give this wine the highly appreciated features of elegance and harmony for which Riserva Chianti Classico is famous.

Grapes grown in the Chianti Classico hills between Florence and Siena.
TYPE OF SOIL
Medium-textured, rich in alberese and galestro.
Guyot and spurred cordon.
Grapes picked by mid-October.
The perfectly ripe and healthy grapes undergo the red winemaking method, on the skins for about two weeks. Temperature control and well-judged daily pumping-over produce a well-structured wine rich in fruity notes and hints of Mediterranean scrubland.
The passage in woodand the subsequent ageing in bottles creates a complex, harmonious, velvety-soft wine.
Ruby red colour with garnet hues. Typical aromas of raspberries, Parma violets and irises with hints of spice and toasted almonds. Candid, tangy, harmonious flavour with stylish, very lingering notes of liquorice and jam.
Roasts, grilled meats, game, strong cheeses.
