About the wine estate

CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA DI MONTEMAGGIO DOCG Gallo Nero

Description
The Chianti Classico Riserva di Montemaggio is a red Tuscan wine with an intense ruby colour and a spicy perfume with a hint of wood. It has a bouquet of rich floral notes, enriched with hints of fruits, pleasantly tannic and well balanced taste with persisting presence. It is produced from a selection of the best Sangiovese grapes that comes especially from the oldest vineyards. The elevated locations of the vineyards (from 450 to 600 metres above sea level) and the large variation in temperature between night and day gives the wine their particular bouquet. The Sangiovese grapes are harvested in the second half of October and the Merlot at the end of September. Following a careful selection of the best grapes (that are left on the plant for longer) fermentation lasts for about 30 days at controlled temperature (less than 26°C) in conical wood trunk vats. Malolactic fermentation takes place in stain- less steel and wooden vats. Maturation takes place thereafter for about 28-36 months.
