Chianti Classico Riserva ‘Le Barancole’ Docg 2009 – San Giusto a Rentennano

Chianti Classico Riserva ‘Le Barancole’ Docg

This is a typically red wine from central Tuscany exactly closer to Gaiole in Chianti Siena. This wine was part  Itaians wine on Top 50 wines of the year 2013 from Decanter and ranked on the 43-rd position.

Chianti Classico Riserva Le Baroncole is made from 97% Sangiovese and 3% Canaiolo grapes.
The initial stages of its production are the same as for our Chianti Classico. It is then aged in French oak barriques for a period which varies from 16 to 20 months, according to the vintage. It is bottled unfiltered and held for a further six months, before it is released. Le Baroncole is a wine of long ageing potential.

Young and fragrant. The palate has great volume, with densely packed tannins and ripe, concentrated fruit on the finish. More solid than refined at the moment. Needs time.
