I Colli Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

Dedicated to I Colli, the Bindi Sergardi country estate, for 700 years the spiritual core for the family's 23 generations. Here began our continuing evolution in excellence.

Grape varietals: 100% Sangiovese

Soil: terrain with ample skeleton Alberese, Silt 40%, clay and sand 30%

Vinification and aging: Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats where maceration lasts circa 18 days at a controlled temperature of 28/30° Celsius. After the alcoholic fermentation the wine is transferred into oak barrels where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and where it remains for further refinement. The bottled wine is then stored in the cellar prior to its release.

Tasting notes: Intense ruby red color. Fruit, flowers and spices on the nose, a bouquet that reflects the soil where it comes from, rich in Alberese. In the mouth it is soft, with a nice level of acidity that makes this wine fresh and lively. Sweet and mature tannins grant the wine a long finish. The Riserva I Colli is an excellent expression of Sangiovese within the estate and that is why it carries its name.

Serving suggestions: Traditional accompaniments are red meat (both roasts and salted), game, cheese and typical Mediterranean first courses.

Serving temperature: 18C° – open 1 hour ahead of time. Store at a constant temperature of circa 17C° away from light.
