Castello di Montespertoli, Chianti Riserva, Italy 2015
A beautifully balanced, highly more-ish Chianti Riserva, from the Chianti Montepertoli DOCG - the smallest of the Chianti sub-zones. Made from 80% Sangiovese, with a little bit of Merlot to round off the edges and some Cabernet Sauvignon for added structure, this is a rich, fresh, cherry fruit scented red with spicy, savoury notes from the oak barrel ageing and an all round soft and easy drinking character.
It is drinking beautifully already, even better after a good few hours breathing.
Offered: November 2018.
Drinking window: 2018 – 2022.
Food matching: Will go down particularly well with roast lamb, hard, strong cheeses, or Tuscan-style sausage and bean casseroles.
