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.
