Intense ruby red. It is a complex wine. Its bouquet blends the typical fruity aromas of Sangiovese (such as blackberry, ripe marasca, plum) with the elegant notes of wood. A rich wine. On the palate it is velvety and harmonious with an excellent balance between acidity and sweet tannins. Aging wine, gives its best from the 5th year after the harvest It goes with grilled red meat. Its harmony and typicality are also exalted perfectly by aged cheeses.
The 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva is powerful, deep and layered right out of the glass. At the same time, there's plenty of tannin too, so a bit of aging is probably a good idea. Black cherry, kirsch spice, new leather, licorice and mocha all open with a bit of time. This extroverted, deep Riserva has a ton to offer. A kick of freshness on the finish nicely balances the radiant intensity of the fruit.
