chianti classico DOCG Riserva


 

The Riserva is only made in exceptionally good years with the best Sangiovese selected from the estate’s oldest vineyards so in this sense we might well describe the Riserva as our “Grand Cru”. Like our other wines, the Riserva has great ageing potential, improving considerably over the years to express the quintessential features of Chianti-grown Sangiovese: minerality, fresh fruit and outstanding elegance..
