The 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva delivers impressive richness and concentration. It offers an incredibly smooth and pure quality of fruit with loads of fresh berry, espresso and leather. I loved the impeccable smoothness of this wine. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025. (by eRoberParker)

WS91

Fine depth and complexity highlight this red, featuring leather, tobacco and iron notes allied to black cherry and plum fruit. Balanced on the firm side, with fine acidity driving the long finish. Best from 2016 through 2024.


Made from the best selection of Sangiovese from The Vertine, Adine and Colle ai Lecci vineyards. Vinification broadly resembled that of the Chianti Classico, with very little handling and no addition of either sulphur nor yeast. The Riserva is not a vineyard selection but a cellar selection, in which the best wines end up in the Riserva blend.

After the grapes arrived in the cellar they were destemmed, but not crushed and led into concrete vats varying in content between 10 and 100hl. Fermentation is done by ambient yeast only and without temperature control. After alcoholic fermentation, the different batches of wines remain on the skins for up to eight weeks.

The philosophy behind the unusually long period of post fermentation maceration is to think of the tanks as a highly complex unity of skin, lees and wine. At first the skin contact is determinately extraction, whereas the following period is about the exchange between wine, skins, tannins and lees, adding richness and complexity to the final wine.

The wines are racked in large oak casks and tonneaux where it remains for a year on the fine lees, the long contact results in a denser, rounder mouthfeel. After a second racking the wines remain in cask for an additional 10 months. After the wine has been bottled it is estate cellared for at least another year before release onto the market.
