Chianti Colli Senesi Riserva

2018
Italy
Tuscany

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.
