Description

Chianti Classico Riserva Cortevecchia is the most polished expression of the territory, where the Sangiovese grape benefit from a long aging in wood to develop the classic, complex aromas of a Chianti Classico.

The fragrances are given time to expand, enrich, and grow. The result is a wine that perfectly expresses the variety and territory, smooth and elegant with an irreproducible texture when grown in other areas.

Winemaking and Aging

Winemaking

Fermentation takes place in open conical steel tanks, with a semi-automatic fulling system, at a controlled temperature of 28 °C for a period of 14 days; the grapes are inoculated with selected indigenous yeasts.

Aging

16/20 months in oak casks 0f 27 hL. A 6-month aging period in bottle follows.

Tasting Notes

The Chianti Classico Riserva is the most noble expression of the terroir, with the grapes that benefit from a longer aging in wood, developing in a more complex way the typical fragrances of a Chianti Classico. The scents are amplified and expand as variations of symphonic music, enriched with elements and fullness, but still following the melody, that is the floral and fruity voice of Sangiovese. A purple glass with hints of roses and bougainvillea, cherries and sour cherries, with hints of almond paste and fine spices.
The mouth is fresh on liquorice tang and well-rounded on the fruit side, with a soft and harmonious development and length on the palate. Fragrant and territorial, with a refined tannic structure.

Pairing

Lamb with mushrooms and potatoes, or pork shoulder roasted with chanterelles.
