Cortevecchia 2020 Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG awards

Cortevecchia Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG, the most typical expression of Sangiovese

Cortevecchia Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG is an organic and vegan wine, the result of a long maturation of the grapes inside oak wood. This wine is a full-bodied red with extraordinary fragrances typical of a Chianti Classico that in San Casciano finds its maximum expression through the distinctive Sangiovese.

The new vintage of Cortevecchia 2020 can be purchased on the Principe Corsini Online Shop, along with the previous vintages still available.

Vinification and aging of Cortevecchia

The Sangiovese (95%) and Colorino (5%) grapes used to produce Cortevecchia are harvested separately.

For the vinification, the grapes, after destemming, are left whole grain and transported, without pumps. The spontaneous fermentation takes about ten days in open conical steel tanks with automatic follator. Aging between 16 and 20 months continues in oak barrels of 27 hl, followed by a further period in bottles of at least six months.
