Chianti Riserva

Chianti Riserva


larocca-1
The Chianti Riserva follows the traditions of our heritage in the Colline Pisane (Pisan hills), an area designated Chianti DOCG. The wine is crafted from at least 85% Sangiovese, completed with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. As “Riserva” the wine receives two years of cellar ageing prior to bottling.

Villa Saletta produced this wine in the 2007 and the 2008 vintages with bountiful Sangiovese crop.

Pairing Notes

The ideal partner to Tuscan food, including pasta dishes, prosciutto and salami.
