Uggiano Prestige Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

2014

In a Nutshell

A ripe, generous Riserva - mature and complex but with lovely freshness too

Tasting Notes

Pronounced aromas of violet, bramble, dried fruit and a hint of toasty oak. The palate has plum, wild cherry fruit, spicy balsamic notes and supple tannins - leading on to a long finish.

Production Notes

After crushing, the grapes undergo temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks using selected yeasts. The must is pumped over the skins twice a day to extract colour and tannin. After 15 days the wine is racked to large oak botti (30-60 hl) for 14 months. The wine is refined in bottle for at least a further 12 months before release.
