  • 2008 Fattoria di Petroio Chianti Classico Riserva

    Total production: 3000 bottles
    Bottled: February 2013
    Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot, 10% blend of
    Colorino, Cabernet & Malvasia Nera.
    Fermentation: Traditional; duration 20 days.
    Permanence on yeast: 90 days with technique of batonnage.
    Aging: 20 months in Tonneaux of french oak; 6 months
    in stainless steel; 22 months in 25hl oak barrel.
    Organoleptic examination: A wine with great potential and a deep intense
    ruby red color.
    Complex aromas on the nose where mature fruit
    combines with more vegetal nuances, all woven
    through with spicy, as well as, tertiary veins
    (hay and grass, cinnamon and cloves, leather
    and cocoa). The result manages to be interesting
    and diverse from many different angles while
    pleasantly tempting and stimulating the
    curiosity of the taster.
    On the palate the wine is generous, expansive
    and full, particularly persistent and extremely
    well balanced given the great complexity on the
    nose.

    The finish is lengthy and strikingly long.
    Food parings: The great depth of structure and its extreme
    complexity permit a wide combination with
    many rich important dishes. Game, roasted
    meats, grilled beef and complex stews will find
    a fine compliment as well as aged cheeses and
    salamis
