Chianti Classico Riserva by Borgo la Stella | 2015


From the namesake Borgo la Stella vineyard in Radda in Chianti, this Riserva bottling is a Tuscan stunner. An intense ruby core in the glass unfolds into peppery blackberry, tobacco, cherry and wild savory herbs. Aged for a year in 500L barrels with 20% Merlot, this Chianti Classico is tradtional with a touch of modern flair, the perfect compromise for Old World and New World palates. At 13.0% abv, we prefer this in a Burgundy glass, served between 59-63 (F). Pair with peppery pasta dishes, tomato-based pizzas, or herb-grilled chicken.
