PRODUCT INFORMATION

This fine Riserva wine is made from the best grapes of eight select vineyards in Castello di Albola, each of which contributes to the end result by delivering a
particular note of Sangiovese, made from a single grape variety. The bouquet evokes the strength of the forest and the elegance of the higher rows; with
every sip, it translates the warmth of this land into a powerful expression. After resting for almost three years, including fourteen months in oak barrels and
another eighteen months in bottle, the ageing process brings out a buoyant personality, with smooth tannins, and a savoury, concentrated taste with hints
of black fruit and cut flowers.

2016 climate
2016 proved to be an excellent vintage, characterized by ideal climatic conditions during all the phenological phases of the vine. A mild winter and a spring with
average seasonal temperatures was followed by a relatively warm summer with moderate rainfall at regular intervals, which ensured the vines had sufficient water
reserves during the crucial ripening phase. The marked temperature variations and constant breezes also helped to keep the Castello di Albola vineyards dry
and the Sangiovese grapes to reach the harvest in perfect condition. Our Chianti Classico vintage 2016 is a red that stands out for its remarkable
aromatic finesse and very well-balanced body.

Vinification and ageing
The must is left to settle in vertical tanks for about 3 weeks. Once the malolactic
fermentation process is complete, the wine is left to age in wooden barrels.
The wine is aged for about 14 months; 40% of the wine rests in Allier oak
barrels, and 60% in traditional Slavonian oak barrels. This is followed by 18
months of ageing in bottles.

Tasting notes
colour: ruby red.
bouquet: intense with notes of berries, tobacco and licorice.
flavour: enveloping and elegant, slightly tart with a long, persistent finish.

Food pairings
Excellent with pasta dishes with tomato sauce, red meat, meat roasts, game
and medium-aged cheeses.
