Beautiful ruby red colour with a slight violet hue. The nose is alive with pronounced notes of red berries while the medium-bodied palate is fruity, harmonious and persistent. Finishes long and with great weight. This food-friendly Chianti is a perfect match for savoury appetizers, cured meats and barbecue.

Vecchia Cantina Chianti Riserva 2016

This terrific Tuscan value comes from carefully selected grapes 400 metres above sea level on top of a limestone ridge adjacent to the ancient village of Montepulciano. The grapes are hand harvested and after a traditional vinification it spends 2 years in oak. Aromatic, expressive and round, this vintage offers loads of Sangiovese character in a succulent, mid-weight style that will find plenty of admirers. The balance of the texture and freshness makes for a compelling Chianti to drink now and over the next few years. All and all, a terrific Tuscan value!
