chianti classico DOCG Riserva 2014


 

2014 has been a complicated vintage. Obsessive attention in the vineyard and severe selections were the only means at our disposal to bring home something satisfying. In such vintages there is usually no Riserva outcoming. But our oldest vineyards suprised us once again and in the end there were 4.000 bottles of Riserva in the cellar ! To us the essence of 'Riserva' lies not necessarily in greater intensity or alcoholic concentration. As a matter of facts, we get more excited by elegance, subtleness and complexity. And we found lots of that in the 2014.
