Astrale Chianti Riserva is harmonious and certainly a pleasant choice for Sangiovese lovers. The vintage of this wine gives mature and complex taste to a wine that has already been produced with the methodology of the Riserva*. The Sangiovese grapes are blended to bring spicy and red fruit scents to this wine and with an excellent structure. *“Riserva” is a label term to indicate a longer gaining and higher % of alcohol. Most of the time it refers to a higher-quality wine.

Nice expression of  the classic blend Sangiovese e Canaiolo that shows a little bit of age in a nice and warm vintage. I like the ruby colour and classic perfumes of wild berries, violets and spices. Definitely the “menzione” Riserva adds prestige and structure to this wine.

Tasting

Vinification takes place after the delicate crushing of the grapes. The must macerated on the skins for 1-2 weeks in order to favour the extraction of colour and other polyphonic substances. Light ruby-red with garnet reflections. Fine, with scents of cherries, wild berry fruits, violets and spicy hints. Dry and fresh, with a good body and agreeable tannins.

Food pairing

Nice matching with Cinghiale ragù (boar) or with a Bistecca Fiorentina and a nice Pizza
