2013 Ispoli Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

Riserva 2011 - bottle100% Sangiovese grown entirely in our vineyards. This is a selection of our best grapes that include fruit sourced from over 40 year old vines. It ferments with wild yeast and macerates on it´s skins for around 20 days with frequent manual punching down of the cap and is vinified with the intention creating a wine with an inbuilt capacity to age. Produced only in the best years. It can be enjoyed on release but will develop incredible complexity in the bottle with time. Can age for at least 15 years from release.

Intense garnet red colour, on the nose, cherries, blackberries, forest undergrowth aromas, spices and minerals. The palate opens full bodied with mellow but assertive tannins, enjoyable young but can age gracefully. It can accompany a variety of dishes including game and aged cheeses. When young it is best suited to elaborate meat dishes but as the wine ages will be most enjoyable with aged cheeses including blue cheese. It also can be enjoyed by itself. Open possibly an hour before drinking but do not decant. Serve at around 18-20 degrees Celsius.
