Chianti Classico

2014
Italy
Tuscany

100% Sangiovese, with yields at 35 hl/ha. The wine was fermented in open-top stainless steel vats with macerations lasting over a month; malolactic took place in barrel. Aged 18 months in 228-350L barrels, 20% of which were new.  This wine is a clear indication that Candialle is in no rush to release its wines.  Starting with the 2014 vintage, this wine will be labeled as a Riserva.

"The 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva is laced with hints of cedar, tobacco and dried leaves. There is good depth and density in the glass, but also a bit more oak influence than seen in more recent vintages. Even so, the Riserva is a fine effort in a very challenaina vear."
