Our Chianti Classico Riserva is generally made from the finest grapes, mostly Sangiovese and is aged in barrels and barriques of French oak for up to 14 months, then an additional 5 months in the bottle before release. With its rich ruby colour, our Riserva presents a complex nose. It's bouquet is a harmony of the typical Sangiovese fruits and a hint of oak aromas. Rich on the palate, our Riserva strikes a perfect balance between sweet tannins and acidity. Made to mature and to evolve with more and more character, the wine goes beautifully with grilled red meats and well-aged cheeses.
