Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG - Montechiaro
The Chianti Colli Senesi Riserva honours the estate’s terroir with a highly selective, limited production wine made from only the very best Sangiovese grapes. Intense ruby color and aromas of violets, cherry, plum, and sweet spices give way to an enveloping and smooth wine that has aged for two years in oak. Best paired with rich, flavourful foods, wild game, and herbed cheeses. Can continue to refine in the bottle for years.
