Grape Variety:

Sangiovese

Vinification Details:

The grapes for the Finest Chianti Riserva were harvested by hand and using machinery to ensure only the best were selected. Following a traditional fermentation the wine was then aged in oak barrels for about 12 months giving it a smooth and elegant complexity. Riserva quality is only produced in the best years and it denotes a wine that has been aged for at least 24 months so the wine has a hint of oak on the finish.

History:

Piccini's story began in 1882 with Angiolo Piccini, who owned only 7 ha of vineyards in the Chianti area. Even today, Piccini is still 100% family owned by Mario and Martina Piccini who mark the 4th generation. Piccini is one of the few wineries in Italy that has a female winemaker. In one of the most traditionally male-dominated industries Antonella has had huge success producing world-class wines and winning international acclaim.

Regional Information:

This Chianti Riserva was produced using Sangiovese and Merlot grapes grown on the rolling vineyards located in the famous Chianti region in Tuscany. These hills are thought to be the centre of Italian wine-making and it is here that the Sangiovese grape thrives.
