Italy / Tuscany / Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

Red of Sangiovese

"Estate grown in Castelnuovo Berardenga in alluvial soil with limestone, clay, and sand; 100% Sangiovese from the best vineyards on the property. The wine is fermented in stainless steel using indigenous yeasts, kept on the skins for a little more than two weeks, and aged in large oval barrels ('botti') for two to three years, depending on the vintage. The critic Antonio Galloni describes Castell'in Villa's wines as some of the most age-worthy in Italy, and although this Riserva drinks well at 5 years of age, it will easily go 20 or more. Outstanding Sangiovese, and one of the best wines in the Chianti Classico appellation. This and grilled rib-eye steak is heaven on earth." -Oliver McCrum
