Riserva Ducale Chianti Classico Riserva began with a careful selection of the best grapes in the traditional Chianti Classico production region during harvest, which began in September and continued through October. Fermentation, aided by racking and punching down, took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats for 10 days, followed by another 10 days of maceration on the skins. The wine underwent secondary malolactic fermentation to enhance its velvety texture, then aged for 24 months in oak, stainless steel, and concrete vats. The Riserva Ducale spent an additional three months in bottle before release.
