Chianti DOCG
Riserva

Azienda Agricola Piandaccoli
Tuscany, Italy

Our Vinum Masters Chianti Riserva is intense ruby red in colour with notes of cherry, black pepper, and nutmeg. Smooth and fresh on the palate, the sweet tannins balance a pleasant warmth, followed by a long aromatic finish with balsamic notes.

Wines from Chianti must contain at least 70% Sangiovese but can be blended with other grapes. Our Vinum Masters Chianti Riserva could be considered a pure example of traditional approach as even if it is unblended, containing 100% Sangiovese, it comes from 7 different clones grown in multiple vineyards, in combinations with 5 different kinds of soil. An extremely flavoured, complex and balanced Chianti.

Tales of the Piandaccoli wine estate date back to the year 1000. It is located on the Via Francigena where it was originally a hostel for pilgrims making the journey from Canterbury to Rome. It later became a monastery where the monks started producing wine for religious ceremonies. Since 2004, the Estate has been renewed by Giampaolo Bruni, who has been deeply invested, injecting commitment, energy, and new life into the Piandaccoli vineyards. Prior to 2004 the estate was owned by his wife’s family.
