Cedro Riserva 2016

Type: Red

Chianti Rufina Riserva D.O.C.G.
90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot

Time has formed the vines giving them unique shapes and, most importantly, the perfect balance in production. The perfect ingredients create a Riserva of great character and complexity of which its noble origins are represented by the pluri-secular Cedar tree on the property after which it is named.

Harvest: Manual in small cases around mid October.

Vinification: Soft destemming of the grapes; fermentation and maceration are achieved at a controlled temperature in French oak barrels of 70 hl for about 25 days with numerous pumpovers and delestages.

Maturation: About 50% of the stock matures in French oak barrels of 35 hl for 14 to 18 months depending on the vintage. The other 50% matures in new French oak barriques for the same period.

Refinement: 12 months in bottles before release.

Ageing capacity: 8-10 years.

Sensory Characteristics: Its color is a deep ruby red with granite reflections. At the nose it is persistent and has intense perfumes of red berries and spice. It is full bodied with a predominant cherry flavour and a touch of cassis, this wine is dry and harmonic and its slightly tannic resonance softens with age.

Serving suggestion: In its early years this wine is complimented with all dishes and when matured, it pairs nicly with roasts, wild game and cheeses.

Serving temperature: 18-20° C.
