GiftThis “riserva” has a Tuscan soul and a heart of Sangiovese. It’s harmonious and dry, with soft tannins, full-bodied, with an elegant floral bouquet and hints of spice. The 2018 grape harvest let us take well-formed bunches to the winery, with thick-skinned, firm grapes. After being picked and fermenting separately, there was a 12-month period of ageing, for the Sangiovese and Canaiolo in Slavonian oak casks and for the Cabernet in used barriques. After blending, the wine went on to age for another year in oak casks, and then for at least 3 months in the bottle. It’s a deep ruby red colour, with a garnet rim. The bouquet unfolds with evolved notes of ripe cherry and blackberry jam, complemented by balanced spicy tones and delicate hints of mint and juniper; the finale has a touch of tobacco and wood (but no hints of vanilla). In the mouth it reveals a typical Chianti soul, entering softly and immediately showcasing a warm but well-structured body. Evident but pleasantly rounded tannins accompany the Sangiovese’s typically fresh flavour. An important wine (also in size!) that goes well with robust and succulent dishes; also to be tried on its own, while chatting with friends or reading a good book.The Chianti Riserva 2018 has two prestigious Gold Medals “hanging around its neck”, one awarded at the Mundus Vini Spring Tasting and the other at the Berlin Wine Trophy.
