The Castello di Meleto Chianti Classico Riserva is wonderfully approachable with an inviting nose of ripe red fruits intermingled with aromatic herbs and sweet spices. The palate is rounded, medium to full bodied with soft tannins and a long, complex and elegant finish.
Grapes are harvested by hand after vigorous selection in the vineyard. Stems are removed and grapes are soft pressed. The must obtained undergoes spontaneous alcoholic fermentation in 53 Hl wooden casks. Once the fermentation is complete, the wine remains in contact with the skins for 20-25 days before it is introduced into cement vats for malolactic fermentation. The wine ages 20 months in 54 hl Slavonian oak barrels and concrete vats.
95% Sangiovese & 5% Merlot
