An extraordinary award-winning Red Riserva Wine that has a bright red colour. On the nose, it has intense and clean characteristics by notes of red fruit, blackberries, blackcurrant and a pleasant vanilla trace.  On the palate, the wine is fresh, full and enveloping. It has an intense tannin that is well balanced by its softness and acidity. This wine pairs well excellently with all tasty meat dishes, medium-aged cheeses and game.

Menicucci Vini Toscani Chianti Riserva 2016 D.O.C.G 13% (Red)

Farming of grapes: This wine is obtained from the Sangiovese grape, grown in the old vineyards selected in the municipalities within Tuscany.  The thermal values characterize a rather warm texture, with little annual rainfall and very high-temperature ranges; ideal conditions that have a positive influence on the quality of the grapes. A Row orientation system is used for planting.  The harvest takes place during the second half of October.

Vinification: After careful selection, the grapes are de-stemmed, then, very gently, crushed, causing as little damage as possible to the skins. The grapes are then fermented in stainless steel tanks for 10-15 days at a temperature ranging between 25 and 28 °C. The wine is aged for 6 months in stainless steel tanks (temperature controlled) then further aged in French oak barrels for 2 years and then an additional 6 months in the bottle prior to release. Being a 2016 vintage bottled in 2020, this means that the wine has already matured in the bottle for 1 year instead of 6 months.
