Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: Italy

Region: Toscana

Grapes: 100% Sangiovese

Tasting Notes: This wine, 100% Sangiovese grape, greets the eye with a very intense ruby red color. It opens with a complex and elegant bouquet, with nuance of mature fruits and vanilla. Soft on the palate, spicy, well balanced with persistent aftertaste.

Food Pairings: Red meat, pasta in sauce, mature cheese, and Italian cuisine of all kinds.

Wine Enthusiast: Warm spices and red berries lay on top of an earthy foundation of soil and cedar on the nose. The earthiness continues on the palate, underscored by chalky tannins but lifted up by more fresh cherries and lively acidity.”

James Suckling: A medium-bodied, firm and focused red with aromas of blueberries, cassis, sage, tobacco, tar and lemon zest. Succulent and finely textured with sleek yet firm tannins. Well balanced and lengthy. Drink or hold.”
