The rapturous qualities of ruby red Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG has been formed in the cellar of Castello della Paneretta of Tuscany region. The pleasant tannins of this wine are derived through the perfect combination of Sangiovese (90%) and Canaiolo (10%) grape varieties that are manually harvested in the middle of September. The maceration process for maximum extraction of color and aromatic particles lasts for five days in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks with regular and frequent pumping over. At the end of this period the liquor is drawn off and it undergoes malolactic fermentation for a few days. The fermented wine then acquires more maturity in the wooden casks of French oak (30 hectoliter) for two years before being bottled at the end of this time.
