2010 La Porta Di Vertine Chianti Classico Riserva

Share on Facebook

As  a  consequence  of  the  wet  and  cool  growing cycle  the  second  part  of  the  harvest  or  triage took   place   much   later   than   usual,   to   await perfect  ripeness  levels  of  the  grapes  left  on  the vines. Although we took a considerable risk with this approach it paid off, and we were rewarded with warm harvest weather.



Due to a cool autumn the ambient temperature in the cellar was already quite low, causing for a slow  fermentation,  never  reaching  more  than 27º  Celsius.  After  fermentation  was  concluded the wine stayed on the skins for almost 50 days, after  which  the  wine  was racked  and  put  into large oak casks where it went through malolactic fermentation.



The 2010 Riserva consists of fruit picked during the second passage in the best plots at Adine and Vertine. These high altitude vineyards consistently   perform   well,  even  un

der   more modest   climatic   conditions   by   giving   small healthy  grape  bunches  resulting  in  perfumed and finely structured wines.
