Cafaggio Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

Villa Cafaggio Chianti Classico Riserva is obtained exclusively from Sangiovese grapes. Grown on land owned by the estate, the vineyard, situated in Panzano in Chianti, extends along the sunny slopes of the ‘Conca d’Oro’ (Golden basin), a wine- growing area of great value.

The Chianti Classico Riserva has an intense ruby red color. The bouquet is dominated by mature fruity notes, reminiscent of black bilberries. It has a full, concentrated and intense flavor. On the palate there is a very pleasant flavor of mature cherries, which lingers for a long time, with sweet tannins that blend in perfectly with the structure of the wine.
Matured for 18 months in medium-sized Slavonian oak barrels. Further maturation for 12 months in glass-lined cement vats and bottle aging for 3 months before sale.

James Suckling
Lovely dried fruit and chocolate character with hints of hazelnut. Medium body, soft tannins and a fresh finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Boasting harmony and balance, the 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva offers a lingering spot of sweet cherry that expands to spice, licorice and tar-like flavors. A pure expression of Sangiovese, the wine delivers bright acidity and a medium build. It should evolve smoothly over the next ten years.
