Terra Nostra Chianti Riserva DOCG

THE WINE
Terra Nostra Chianti Riserva is made in the fashion of a young Bordeaux. Unlike the Gran Crus of the Medoc or the Chianti Classico Riservas of Tuscany, these dry reds are vinified to capture the quality and essence of more austere and longer-lived counterparts, but in a classy, easy, friendly style. A careful selection of premium vinifera grapes (primarily Sangiovese) is followed by a temperature controlled fermentation and a minimum of one year of aging in large oak casks, plus 3 months more in the bottle. The resulting dry reds are pleasant, vibrant and delicious, without the tannins of more costly Tuscan reds. If you are looking for excellent value in Chianti, try Terra Nostra. Enjoy it young, although it will develop with moderate cellaring.

THE VINE
Sangiovese takes its name from “Sangue di Giove” (Blood of Jupiter). It is the most important red varietal in central Italy. The Sangiovese Grosso is also known as the Brunello, Morellino, and Prugnolo Gentile in specific zones of Tuscany. Canaiolo Nero is an early maturing, softer varietal, which is an ingredient in at least 17 D.O.C. wines. It has been in Tuscany for more than two centuries.
