I Sodi Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2015

Chianti Classico DOCG, Tuscany, Italy

Purchased by their father, Ivo, the winery is currently owned and operated by the three Casini brothers; Danilo, Franco and Giancarlo. The land sits in the heart of Tuscany in the historical town, Gaiole. The Cassini brothers are Chianti; classic, sturdy and getting better every year. They and their wines are indistinguishable.

Tasting Notes:

The 2015 Riserva pours a ruby red color. The first scents and flavors are of sweet licorice, tobacco and red fruits. The balance of acid and tannin is absolutely beautiful and the time spent in oak wraps the wine in hints of soft vanilla.

Pair it With:

This wine is perfect for serving with roasts and game. High acid wines also go great with high acid foods. We would enjoy this with almost anything with a tomato based sauce.

Grape Varieties:

95% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo

Aging:

2 years of aging divided, 16-18 months in small oak barrels and medium oak barrels, followed by 8-9 months in bottle before being released.

Soil:

Clay marl with galestro and albariza skeleton

Winemaker:

Andrea Cassini

Alcohol Content:

14%
