Product Description

Chianti Rufina Riserva D.O.C.G.

90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot

Time has formed the vines giving them unique shapes and, most
importantly, the perfect balance in production. The perfect ingredients
create a Riserva of great character and complexity of which its noble
origins are represented by the pluri-secular Cedar tree on the property
after which it is named.

Vineyards: Older vineyards for the Riserva.

Production: max 1kg per vine

Harvest: Mid October.

Vinification: Soft destemming and crushing of the grapes, fermentation and  maceration at controlled temperature, in stainless steel for about 20 days with numerous pumpovers and delestages.

Maturation: 18 months in French oak barrique and 18 months in 35 hl oak barrels.

Refinement: At least 6 months in bottles before release.

Ageing capacity: Is appreciable for several generations.

Sensory characteristics: This wine has an deeper colour, it is particularly envelopping on the nose, with fruity notes and spices. The Sangiovese shows here its greatness, soft and silky. It is full bodied with a predominant ripe cherry flavour. The tannins are fleshy and compact.

Serving suggestions: In its early years this wine is complimented with all food and when aged it is delicious with sauced meats, poultry and roasts.

Serving temperature: 18-20° C
