Carobbio Chianti Classico Riserva 2015
This wine offers a ruby-red color, and aromas of mature red fruits, spices and chocolate. On the palate, it is dry, well- structured, and well-balanced, with rich tannins.
The soil is Limestone, Galestro and Clay. The Southwest-facing grapes were hand- harvested during the second and third weeks of October. There are 10 days of fermentation at controlled temperatures. Maceration is over 15 days. The wine is then aged for 18 months in French Oak barrels, and is refined in the bottle for an additional 6 months. The aging potential is approximately 15 years.
Suggested serving temperature of 64.4 (16-18 C). Pairs well with grilled meats, game, and aged cheeses.
