A masterpiece Riserva from the Chianti Classico DOCG, 2014 vintage. Decanter Silver Medal
Made from pure Sangiovese, the grapes for this Riserva wine are grown in Radda in the mountains of Tuscany. They come from the oldest estate vineyard, which sits at an elevation of 400 metres and faces both south and southwest for ultimate exposure to the sun. The region is known for extreme differences between day and night temperatures, which brings freshness and elegance to the wines. At the vineyard the production yields are very low. The vines are planted densely, which lets the grapes reach top quality before they’re hand-harvested. One fifth of the wine is aged in new French oak barrels, and the rest in once-used Slavonian oak barrels for 20 months. The wine is then aged in the bottle for nine months before release.
Tasting notes: Complex and well-integrated aromas of dried red cherry, leather, aromatic herbs, vanilla, spice, sweet tobacco, forest floor.
Ageing potential: 15 years
“Leather, tobacco and dried cherry nose, followed by cherry, herbal and plum flavours. The oak is well-integrated. Very drinkable and quite persistent.” – Decanter Silver Medal
