Il Grigio Chianti Classico Riserva Docg

Made only from the finest  Sangiovese grapes carefully selected from the estate Chianti Classico vineyards,  this Reserva represents the perfect blend of the traditional and the modern. It spends some 24 months  in oak, with about 20% in small barriques, and one year in the bottle. The front label bears Titian’s famous portrait of a medieval knight in armour.

SOMMELIER

Deep ruby red colour. Aroma: intense and persistent with the typical notes of sweet violet and wild red berries. An austere, full-bodied wine, with succulent tannins and fresh acidity. Enriched with an aromatic complexity that originates from a delicate dosing of wood.

GOURMET

The perfect partner for grilled meats, roast pigeon and rare carved beef.
