Chianti Classico is a myth of Italian Winemaking from Tuscany! 2016 is the 300th Anniversary of the most famous Italian Wine in the World, from the ancient recipe by Barone Bettino Ricasoli (1716). Chianti Classico Riserva is the most noble expression of the terroir, with the grapes that benefit from a longer aging in wood, developing in a more complex way the typical fragrances of a Chianti Classico. This Chianti Classico Riserva ages 20 months in big oak casks and part in tonneaux.

The Winery: Principe Corsini
In an archetypal “Chiantishire” countryside rises a Renaissance villa that is the home of the Principe Duccio Corsini, a cheroot-chewing connoisseur of Chianti and also a gardening expert. In contrast to the medieval origins of his family home, his world famous winemaker Carlo Ferrini helps him craft very modern wines. They display richness, depth of colour and fruit and noteworthy complexity.
