Lodolaio Chianti Classico Riserva Docg 2016 - Premiata Fattoria di Castelvecchi
Pairing: Second dishes featuring red meat
|Wine type||Red Wine|
|In vineyard||Lodolaio is born in a unique terroir in the world due to its microclimate and soil characteristics, located at 500-600 Mt of altitude. Lodolaio is born from Sangiovese grapes obtained from reproduction by mass selection of vines of ancient origin, a true corporate heritage. It matures in the ancient cellar of Castelvecchi, under the vaults of the thousand-year old castle. All these elements contribute to an excellent result in terms of balance between power and elegance. This reserve stems from a careful selection of the grapes, which were collected as late as possible to maximize the ripening of the bunches.|
|In cellar||Maceration lasts for more than 30 days. The wine, after a first decanting, refines for 12 months in new barrique. After two years in the cellar, it is then bottled and refines for another year in a bottle before being ready for sale.|
|Yield||50 - 65 q/Ha|
Bright red color with purple reflections. Fresh scent, complex with intense fruit reminiscent of the scents of red berry fruit such as cherry, currants, blackberry and raspberry. The spicy notes lead back to licorice, cloves, cinnamon, pepper and dark chocolate with a vanilla finish. The taste is warm and enveloping with elegant tannins.
