Castello di Selvole - Chianti classico riserva

Well structured roundness wine and elegance.

Description

This wine is produced in very limited quantities from a very careful selection of grapes. The period of vinification, conducted under carefully controlled temperatures, is much longer than that of the Chianti Classico in order to extract the maximum of color and aroma and allow a greater aging wine. It is kept for about 18 months in French allier barriques, most of which are new, and another six months in bottle, to give a well structured roundness and elegance to the wine.
