Tenuta di Lilliano 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

Made exclusively from carefully selected grapes grown in the Tenuta di Lilliano vineyards, hand-picked during the harvest.

Tasting Notes:

  • Color: Ruby red appearence with a tendency to garnet during aging over the years.
  • Nose: Very intense and elegant with predominant floral notes, especially violets, typical of Sangiovese from Castellina in Chianti.
  • Flavor: It emerges immediately with tasting the excellent relationship between structure, tannin and freshness of taste. Good acidity that extends drinking and enhances the flavor.
  • Food pairings: The wine is very well suited for long aging, and accompanies perfectly red meats, especially roast venison and casseroles.

Additional information:

  • Blend: 95% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot (grapes from the first selection).
  • Vinification: After careful selection in the vineyard, the grapes undergo soft crushing and destalking. During fermentation, which takes place at 26 to 28 °C, the must is pumped over with plunging of the cap on a daily basis, in order to favour the extraction of the noble compounds from the skins.
  • Maceration lasts 21 to 25 days depending on the vintage.
  • Malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, after which the wine continues to mature for 15 months in large casks of French oak with a capacity of 28 and 34 hl.
  • After maturation, the final blend is assembled, bottled, and ages in glass a minimum of 6 months.
  • Bottle-ageing: 6 months (three of which compulsory by law).

Aromas of dark-skinned berry, blue flower and a whiff of chewing tobacco combine on this straightforward red. The bright, easygoing palate shows wild cherry, raspberry and a note of star anise alongside supple tannins. Drink soon.
