Chianti Colli Senesi Riserva
The Riserva is 100% Sangiovese from the estate’s oldest vines, planted in 1993. Maceration lasted a month. Aging was for 16-18 months, first in cement, and then in a new chestnut wood botte of 1000L. 3,000 bottles made. It is deeper and more savory than the ‘normale.’ The inscription on the label reads “Year 1575- closing of San Miniato,” referring to the church on the site of Le Tolfe, which was deconsacrated that year.
