Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG –
Paolina was the first winemaker to produce Chianti Classico at Savignola. We dedicate this refined yet powerful wine with her name, to remember a woman with a strong personality and great respect for the history of Chianti.
This wine is a result of a carefully chosen and hand picked selection of grapes from the best exposure among the vine fields. The aging of 14 months takes place in big oak barrels according to the tradition of Paolina, and then the wine is maturing in bottles for at least 2 years.
A harmonious and elegant wine.
It has an intense ruby red color, deep and inviting. In the nose it awakens your senses of the aromas of mature cherry and a distinct pepper note, anticipating the tasting. This is a full bodied wine that wraps around your palate, fills it with mature tannins and a richness of flavors. Paolina contributes also with a cheerful finish spicy and persistent.
From mostly Sangiovese grapes and other native vines.
