VINIFICATION

Ripe, juicy grapes are picked and loaded into large casks, filling up each with no more than 10 kg. Berries are later carefully selected and destemmed with the help of a vibrating table. They are then being macerated for 13 days in a controlled environment, where the temperature doesn’t rise above 28°C and are continuously exposed to frequent bâtonnage.
Softly crushed and then placed into small oak barrels from 2,25 to 5 hl grapes are kept to mature for 18 months from December to the June of next year in stainless steel tanks, followed by 5 months of ageing in the bottle.

Description

A true classic in an elegant ensemble!

This wine introduces itself with a brilliant purple-hued ruby red colour. A delicate, yet intense bouquet of black cherries, violets and roses convey a juicy fruity&floral fantasy, unravelling with profound earthy undertones, forming a perfectly complex full-bodied treat. The impeccably framed and carefully refined vibrant acidity of the Sangiovese grapes brings a wonderful, gentle liveliness to the mouth. Medium to full-body, it embraces smooth, sweetly polished tannins that make this CHIANTI COLLI SENESI RISERVA a deliciously eloquent, mouthwatering everyday wine with an elegant, silky-textured palate. Drinks beautifully now and will age over the next 8-10 years.
Preferably served at room temperature with cured meat.
