Toscolo Chianti Classico Riserva
90% Sangiovese, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot from clayey-calcareous soil. Vines are 10-30 years old and training is spur-pruned cordon. The grapes undergo temperature-controlled fermentation, followed by delicate maceration on the skins for 15-18 days with daily pumpovers. The resulting wine aged two years in barriques, followed by six months' bottle age. Brilliant ruby color with garnet reflections; ample bouquet of marasca cherries, plums, violets and iris. Top vintages improve for well over a decade.
