CHIANTI RISERVA DOCG

Only a small portion of the entire production of Chianti is allocated to reserves. The best grapes are selected during the harvest to be aged in oak barrels, which enrich the taste of the wine giving their aroma and accelerating the evolutionary processes.
The color is dark red tending to garnet red, the fragrance recalls spices and berries and presents notes of ripe fruit, cinnamon and vanilla. Its flavor is rich with silky tannin.
It is a perfect accompaniment to roasts, grilled meats, game and aged cheese.
