Toscolo Chianti Classico Riserva 2018
Produced with 90% Sangiovese, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot from 10 to 30-year-old vines grown on clayey-calcareous soil with a high vine density for stress and concentration of fruit flavours, Toscolo Chianti Classico Riserva undergoes a temperature-controlled fermentation, followed by delicate maceration on the skins for 15-18 days, with daily pump overs, then aged 2 years in barriques, followed by 6 months’ in bottle before release, after which it will continue to age well for another decade.
Brilliant ruby colour with garnet reflections; ample bouquet of marasca cherries, plums, violets and iris confirmed on a full, luscious palate; lingering, clean finish.
Ideal serving temperature 16-18° C.
Ideal with structured dishes, red meat, and seasoned cheeses.
