About

91

"The 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva emerges with hints of smoke, underbrush, licorice, leather and wild cherries. The wine gains volume and depth in the glass as its sheer pedigree emerges over time. There is plenty of muscle to back up the delicate aromatics in a striking balance of elegance and power, all in an essentially classic, mid-weight style. The round, deeply satisfying finish makes it hard to put the glass down. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2027."

Product Description:

"From 50+ year old vineyards. Starting in the1980s, the vineyards were re-trained and reorganized to exploit the relationship between the variety and the soil. Vinification: Daily punch-downs during fermentation at 28-30C, followed by 12-15 day maceration. Draining-off after fermentation and transfer in March-April to small and medium-sized casks for 12 months’ maturation. 3-6 months’ bottle-ageing." -Winery
