Chianti Classico D.O.C.G. Riserva
This Chianti Classico Riserva D.O.C.G. comes from a selection of Sangiovese grapes from two different vineyards: Il Corno and Il Selvale. It is a fragrant, savoury and persistent wine with intense aromas of woodland, spices and vanilla.
Vinification and ageing
The freshly picked grapes are destemmed and crushed before undergoing fermentation in temperature-controlled steel tanks with a capacity of 50 hl. This is followed by maceration on skins, which can last from three to four weeks. Malolactic fermentation then takes place in wood. When this phase is complete, ageing in second and third-passage French oak tonneaux and 20hl Slavonian oak barrels begins, and this lasts for approximately 20 months. After bottling, the wine undergoes at least nine months’ bottle ageing, after which the product is ready for sale.
