Pietro Beconcini, Chianti Riserva, 6 Bottle Case, 75cl
'The wine dedicated to my father, thanks to him BECONCINI was a pioneer in the cultivation of the vine in this area.
The old Chianti Riserva vineyards were planted 60 years ago by Pietro Beconcini and allow me today to preserve the style and authentic expression of this wine in its most important version.'
Purple-edged deep ruby. Nose; vinous, showing violets, leather and coffee. Palate; quite robust, round with earthy notes, Spurred cordon. very typical and elegant acid/tannic structure.
The focus for Piero is a true expression of Sangiovese which he feels is best achived through rigorous vineyard work. The wines show a classic style, unmistakably Italian.
