2018 Cantalici Chianti Classico Messer Ridolfo Riserva DOCG

  • This Chianti Classico Riserva is named for the owner of the ancient brick kiln from the 16th Century, L'Antica Fornace di Ridolfo, Messer Ridolfo Zita.  The remains of the stone furnace can still be seen in the winery cellar. Carlo and Daniele produce this classic from 100% Sangiovese fruit harvested from vineyards that are 350 meters above sea level and enjoy full southwest sun exposure. This classic Chianti shows intense ruby red color with purple hues. The nose is intensely rich with aromas of cherry, red fruits and tobacco. 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 cellar up to 15 years.
