“Hedonistic nose of spice, chocolate, forest floor, tomato and cooked fruit. Modern but deeply attractive nonetheless with a rich, seductive quality to the fruit, ripe tannins and a moreish quality that is hard to resist. Not the most witty wine but one that would welcome you home after a hard day at the office.” /About Terreno Chianti Classico Riserva 2009, Decanter 83 / 100.
When producing our Chianti Classico Riserva, it is with an authentic Tuscan family meal in mind.
This is a full-bodied wine with notes of dark cherries and Tuscan herbs, characteristics that make the wine go perfectly well both with the Italian and the traditional Swedish cuisines. Let the traditions fuse and enjoy this wine with tasty food and in good company!
This is a very good wine for ageing, and if stored correctly, it only gets better and better with time.– Sofia Ruhne
Tell us about how the Chianti Classico Riserva was born?
Like Chianti Classico, this is one of our most classical wines that represent the area well. The difference between a Chianti Classico and a Chianti Classico Riserva is the time it is stored before it is released on the market. In order to have the name ‘Riserva’ on the label, the wine must have been stored for at least two years in oak barrels and one year bottled. Our first vintage of Terreno Chianti Classico Riserva is 1993.
What kind of wine is the Chianti Classico Riserva?
Longer ageing makes this wine powerful in both scent and taste. The oak is more evident, which increases the spicy flavours. This is a very good wine for ageing, and if stored correctly, it only gets better and better with time.
How is it best enjoyed?
This is a perfect wine to be enjoyed with good friends and good food! The wine comes to its fullest served at 16°C in a glass that allows the wine to breathe.
What does it pair with?
Rich flavours, slow cooked meat dishes, preferably game. It pairs perfectly with for example wild boar meat sauce or the Tuscan meat casserole peposo.
