Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva "Clemente VII" 2017 - Castelli del Grevepesa

If the word Riserva appears on the label of a Chianti Classico, we can be sure that it is a very respectful wine. If we then discover in its description, that it is a label that has received multiple awards from Italian and international critics, then it is certain that we are about to taste a product of excellence. The Riserva mention is assigned to those wines, Chianti Classico in this case, that for the particular quality of the grapes deserve an additional period of maturation in the cellar. More months in wooden barrels guarantee, in fact, a higher concentration and a higher quality. In the case of this Clemente VII of Castelli del Grevepesa, it is a 100% Sangiovese, harvested by hand, which after vinification is divided into two lots. About half of the wine is put into Slavonian oak barrels where it rests for at least 24 months. The other half, however, is put into barriques for only 12 months. Only at the end of this long wait, the wine is finally reassembled and bottled for the last period of refinement in glass before release. Very intense ruby red colour, the nose reveals marked aromas of berries and spices. In the mouth it is full, with excellent structure. A balanced and harmonious wine with a persistent aftertaste.

There is no area more fascinating and full of history and tradition than Chianti. And a piece of this history is linked to the name of Castelli del Grevepesa. We are in San Casciano Val di Pesa, about fifteen kilometres from Florence, right at the gateway to the Chianti Classico region. Here, in 1965, a group of 18 winegrowers created a new reality. United by a single dream, that of keeping intact the secular traditions of Tuscan viticulture, the territory and the peasant customs. In order to do so, the focus is now on the production of high quality wines, in compliance with the strict rules of the Black Rooster Consortium. Since then, a lot of wine has passed through the jars of the Cantina, which over the years has grown to its current capacity of about 120 member companies, with vineyards that extend mainly in the municipalities of Greve in Chianti, San Casciano Val di Pesa (Mercatale Val di Pesa), Tavarnelle Val di Pesa and Barberino Val d'Elsa. The range has clearly expanded and now includes wines from all the major regional appellations. From Chianti and Chianti Classico, to Vernaccia, Nobile di Montepulciano and even includes a Maremma line, with Vermentino, Rosato and Morellino. But there's no shortage of goodies. Even if the dimensions have changed, the passion that is put into the work of every day is unchanged.
