Ruby-red in colour. Aromas of red cherries and violets. On the palate flavours of cherry and blackberry with cedar and toast, integrated tannins and a racy acidity. The finish is warm and spicy. Aged for two years in a mixture of different oak barrels before. This Riserva is a very fine wine and drinking beautifully now.

Chianti Classico Riserva Caparsa, Sangiovese, fruity, structured, elegant. A lovely example of Chianti Classico from right at the very heart of Chianti, with cherry and blackberry flavours, structure, richness and balancing freshness. Paulo the Vigneron believes that his wines have a rustic character in youth, but are designed to age, and this is true of his Chianti Riserva. He says of it: “It is a wine for wine lovers, with great complexity and strong emotions. It is too much for some people. It represents, more than the other wines, the terroir”. Drinking very well at the moment but certainly has the potential to age for years. These particular grapes come from the best vines a few hundred metres up the slope from the cellar. Fermentation is natural and maturation takes place in large, 10 hectolitre barrels.
