Sasso del Falco

Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: Italy

Region: Toscana

Grapes: 100% Sangiovese

Winery Tasting Notes: Bright red-berry and stony-mineral character to this elegant Riserva, with a tinge of vanilla accompanying the fruit from start to finish. Full-bodied with round soft tannins and the same blend of vivid, creamy red berry through the finish.

Winemaking: Fermentation at a controlled temperature of 28 degrees Celsius with 10 days maceration with skins. Aged 50% in Slavonian oak barrels for 24 months, 50% in barriques for 12 months. Aged at least 3 months in bottle.

James Suckling: “A creamy and tasty red with aromas of sandalwood, peach pits, plums, balsamic and walnuts. Medium-bodied with chalky, medium-firm tannins. Crushed walnuts to close. Sustainable. Drink or hold.”

91 points, James Suckling (2019)
