The rolling hills of Tuscany are home to the Sangiovese grape. Here our producers make mouth-filling, rich and robust red wines from this noble grape.
The 2009 vintage of Chianti Riserva was released in April 2012 and represents the best value the winery produces, year in and year out! Made from a blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Colorino, and from the best selection of grapes from the Rufina area. The wine is aged for 14 months in oak barrels after a long 25 day fermentation. Further bottle aging, as required by law, means this wine has already been cellared for you. While it will continue to develop and improve with a few more years of bottle age, it is ready to offer immediate gratification and pleasure. This wine has recently received an 91 point score from The Wine Spectator and was described as "A mix of smoky tobacco, cherry, cedar,spice and bitter almond marks this complex and appealing red. The light-grained tannins bolster the long finish. Developing nicely for now. Drink now through 2020. 7,000 cases imported."-B.S.
