Certosa di Pontignano
Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva 2013
The Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG Certosa di Pontignano is the perfect expression of Chianti Classico’s terroir and celebrates the rebirth of the Certosa’s winemaking tradition. Made with a selection of the best Sangiovese grapes (with the addition of a small percentage of Canaiolo and Colorino) growing around the south-western area of the Certosa di Pontignano, the Chianti Classico Riserva is an extremely elegant wine with a full, complex body and a bouquet rich in ripe red fruits, violet, vanilla. A well-structured wine that, according to the procedures required by Chianti Classico product specifications, is aged in French oak barrels for about 17 months, followed by minimum 4-month-long period of bottle-aging.
