Santa Margherita 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Red Wine 750mL Bottle

When the finest, most flavorful dishes come to the table, our complex, earthy and austere Chianti Classico Riserva should always be there to greet them. This authentic taste of Tuscany is the ultimate expression of Italian hospitality, whether shared between friends or paired with special occasion dishes and holiday gatherings. The aromas of this complex red wine range from cherries and plums to gladiolus flowers and earthy flint. The tannic, oak-aged flavors are bright and round, with a dry, warm, fresh earthy finish. Best enjoyed with very flavorful dishes, such as tomato-based sauces, roasts of pork or beef, and game meats from venison to pheasant. It is also excellent with mature cheeses. Our Chianti Classico Riserva takes its name and its unmistakable spirit from its birthplace in the heart of Tuscany. Rooted in history – the Romans cultivated grapes in the region over 700 years ago – this classic wine has had a long and aristocratic history throughout the world. The nuanced, layered tastes of this wine begin with the blending of juice from three different grape varietals; predominantly Sangiovese with the addition of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. We use a two-stage fermentation process to develop the wine to its full, round flavor and character. After two years of aging in French oak barrels, and an additional 3 months aging after bottling, it is released to the market and ready for you to share at your table.
