I Colli Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

TENUTA I COLLI

 

 

 

Dedicated to I Colli, the Bindi Sergardi hamlet that represents the history and soul of 23 generations of the family.

 

Denomination: Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

Grape varietals: 100% Sangiovese

Soil: terrain with ample skeleton – Alberese.

Vinification and aging: fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats where maceration lasts 18 days at a controlled temperature of 28/30° C. 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: 18° C – open 1 hour ahead of time. Store at a constant temperature of 17° C away from light.
