Chianti Classico Riserva from organic cultivation

Cortevecchia is the company’s Chianti Classico Riserva. The 2016 vintage of this DOCG can now be purchased online in the Principe Corsini Shop.

Cultivated in the organic vineyards of Villa Le Corti, this wine has a territorial and varietal character, soft and elegant at the same time. A red wine that cannot be reproduced with any other different grapes.

Among the awards received, this wine obtained an excellent score of 92/100 from the wine critic James Suckling. 93/100 is the score awarded by Falstaff, 17++/20 is instead the award received by Jancis Robinson and 90/100 is the score of Wine Plus.

Tasting notes of Riserva Cortevecchia

This wine, ruby and bright, leaves in the mouth notes of lavender and cherry, rose and pomegranate, up to the floral touch that turns into red-orange and citrus. The finish is elegant and agile with notes of aromatic herbs, black cherry, mint and liquorice root.

Cortevecchia Riserva was born as a partnership between the authentic soul of Chianti Classico and the passing of time able to refine the wine and deliver its beauty in glasses.
