The Chianti Classico Riserva comes from a selection of grapes from vineyards which are more suitable for long maturing. Vinified in steel with a maceration of about 20 days, and as a second passage, it is aged in smaller wooden barrels for about 18 months, to then rest for a minimum of 3 months in glass. Composition of the grapes: 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo and Colorino.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva is a dark and thickly concentrated expression in terms of appearance. Its texture is soft and luscious. The blend is 90% Sangiovese with smaller parts Canaiolo and Colorino. Like many other wines from this vintage, the mouthfeel is leaner and more compact than usual.
