Dante Alighieri Chianti Classico Riserva was created to embody the traditions and innovative spirit of Tuscany. The wine starts with ripe, coastal fruit. Only the finest grapes from family-owned vineyards near Suvereto, Cecina and Bolgheri are used to make this Chianti Classico Riserva.
Maritime influences and special soil - consisting of clay, limestone and gravel - impart a notable softness to the fruit in hillside areas. This wine undergoes old, traditional vinification methods with completely mature grapes that are harvested and crushed almost immediately. After fermentation, the wine is filtered and stored at constant temperature in Slavonian oak casks for a minimum period of 24 months. It completes its refinement in dark bottles for a minimum period of 3 months.
This Chianti Riserva is made from a blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
