Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG - 2021

s reserve style Chianti Classico (100% Sangiovese) has great complexity and minerality, and therefore requires more time prior to release. Only the best grapes are selected from Sa’etta, a single vineyard which benefits from the best position, exposure and terrain on our estate. After natural fermentation, in large oak casks, the wine is placed in a combination of German and Austrian oak where it undergoes malolactic fermentation. The wine remains in oak for at least 24 months, followed by finishing in bottle for another 12 months.

The vineyard from which this wine is born consists of highly reflective sandstone (Arenaria-Calcare-Pietraforte), rich with quartz inclusions, resulting in a complex reserve style Sangiovese which is elegantly balanced; given time, this wine reveals luscious fruit components, a strong minerally-driven backbone, balanced acidity and firm elegant tannins. This wine can be laid down to be enjoyed in the years to come, but can also be enjoyed upon release.
