2012 Cantalici Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG (Decantur 95, Suckling 93)

  • This is Carlo and Daniele’s reserve. The Sangiovese fruit is hand selected and hand picked for this classic Chianti. After a cold maceration and fermentation process, the wine is aged 18 months in French oak barriques and steel tanks. The wine shows intense ruby red color with purple hues. The nose is intensely rich with aromas of cherry, red fruits and vanilla. The wine delivers generous fruit to the palate with hints of cherry, plum, and chocolate. The well-balanced tannins and acidity provide for a persistent finish. Enjoy with ripe cheeses, pizza, pasta with meat sauces, poultry, lamb, lean beef, and game. Best served 65 degrees F. Enjoy now or hold.  Best 2018-2025.
