Chianti DOCG Riserva
90% Sangiovese, 10% grape varieties native to the Chianti area including colorino and canaiolo.
The grapes used in the “Italo” Chianti Reserve are 100% hand-picked to guarantee maximum quality selection. On reaching the cellar they ferment at a temperature of no more than 25°C to ensure the flavour and bouquet typical of the production area are fully maintained.
REFINING IN THE BOTTLE:
Bottling takes place no earlier than 24 months after harvesting, and sales no earlier than 3 months after refining in the bottle.
“Italo” is an intense ruby red with garnet reflections. Intense, spicy bouquet, soft and elegant, with notes of violets, red fruits, cherry and marasca. Well-bodied and balanced on the palate, the soft, balanced tannins offering perfect acidity.
