Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2014 play

Region: Italy / Tuscany / Chianti
Grapes: 100% Sangiovese

Nozzole estate consists of 1,000 acres of vineyards at 300 meters in elevation in the Chianti Classico zone. In order to obtain concentration and complexity in the wine, yields are kept low. The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed and crushed. Fermentation was initiated on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and maceration lasted 15-20 days. The wine was racked into stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation before aging for 16 months in large Slavonian oak vats followed by a minimum of 3 months in bottle before release.

harvest note

2014 began with a warm, wet winter and spring. The rains and humidity continued throughout the summer. This wet weather provided for a difficult growing year that led to smaller crops then usual but produced gorgeous, elegant wines.

tasting note

Crisp, ripe, red berry and cherry aromas are shaped by vibrant, fresh acidity. In the mouth, flavors show classic Sangiovese notes of earth, mushrooms and leather, with a backbone of firm yet elegant tannins.

food pairing

Pairs well with meats and meat pasta sauces, poultry and hard cheeses.
