This Chianti Riserva is made from a blend of Sangiovese and a touch of Canaiolo grapes from the Chianti Rufina area. It is only produced in very good vintages, and is released after 30 months of aging, as required by law. A warm and inviting red with concentrated nose, full and fleshy plumy palate and refined tannins.

Intense violet robe. Aromas of plums and ripe blackberry.
