The selection of the best grapes of our vineyards, the richest ones and the ones able to ensure a great longevity are used to create the Chianti Classico Riserva Podere l’Aja.
A wine with a great potential of aging, austere and sometimes morose with who does not know to wait for it, a wine aware that with it, the time is a “gentleman”. The bouquet is rich with spicy and balsamic hints. At the taste it results balanced between strength and smoothness.
Pair with wild game and grilled meats.Grapevine: 90% Sangiovese 10% Merlot.
Growing area: Radda in Chianti.Training system: Guyot.
Harvest: The best Sangiovese grapes are selected from all our vineyards in the first half of October.
Vinification and ageing:
The must of grape is fermented in stainless steel vats. The marc is treated with pumping-over, fulling and delestages that ensure the good extraction of the best parts of the grape. The new wine, starting from the end of Autumn, ages in Slavonian wood barrels for 24 months and spends at least 6 more months of refining in the bottle before selling.
