This wine is usually produced from the best blocks of old vines with the sunniest exposition in the estate owned by the Conti Capponi near Greve in Chianti. The ripe and perfectly healthy grapes from each block are long fermented and then aged separately for 20 months in French oak 500 liters tonneaux and Slavonian oak 30 hl casks. After the cuvee is made the wine ages for another 4/6 months before its bottling.
The colour of Villa Calcinaia’s Chianti Classico Riserva is rich ruby, whilst the bouquet is mature in its fruit, well blended with the oak. The taste of the wine is soft, velvety. The structure is solid and the wood well integrated. The aftertaste is spicy and persistent.
Villa Calcinaia’s Riserva is for important occasions, with rich meat dishes, or just as an added enjoyment during a conversation.
