The hillsides of Tuscany are as diverse in soils as they are altitudes. However, the majority of vineyards consist of soils that are rich in calcareous clay, limestone and fragmented rock. Only the very best grapes are selected to be part of our Chianti Classico Riserva. Each lot is processed and fermented separately in order to retain the avor quality of the fruit. During maceration, the fruit yields polyphenols and noble tannins which gives the wine a nice balance.The Riserva is a richly structured wine suited to a long maturation stage, after which it is aged a minimum of 24 months on oak before it is ltered and bottled.
