Chianti Classico Riserva comes from the magnificent Conca d’Oro in Panzano in Chianti, one of the most suitable wine-growing areas of Tuscany. This new, intriguing pure Sangiovese was born with the 2018 vintage and embodies the soul of Panzano in Chianti. Its main distinguishing features are tannin density, balance and fruit purity, which give the wine a strong, regional character.
The vineyard that produces the Chianti Classico Riserva grapes is situated on a natural south-west facing plateau, at a height of 450 metres. New Sangiovese clones have been planted in this vineyard, whose clusters contain small grapes with extremely thick and resistant skins that capture and absorb every ray of light on the mild September days. The loamy soil, rich in minerals and consisting of a balance of clay, sand and silt, allows the plants to grow deep roots and obtain optimal nourishment during the growth cycle.
The wine that originates from these vineyards mirrors the famous Panzano in Chianti land – a wine-growing area that produces crystalline and pure wines that encapsulate the complexity of the local terrain, the brilliance of the sunlight and the fresh sea breezes characteristic of the long summer days of the Conca d’Oro microclimate.
