Chianti Classico, Riserva Agostino Petri da Vicchiomaggio

Chianti Classico, Riserva Agostino Petri da Vicchiomaggio

A richer Chianti with ripe concentrated flavours made from 90% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo and 5% Cabernet. The grapes come from mature vineyards, about 20 years old that is trained to produce low yields. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled tanks with a medium-length maceration on the skins. The wine is matured in French oak barriques for six months and then in large oak barrels for a further nine months; this combination of modern and traditional ageing provides a balanced structure showing both fruit and notes of oak. Enticingly sweet, ripe fruit on the nose; the palate shows concentrated black cherries with rich, almost opulent tannins. A velvety wine with great complexity.
