To obtain the "Riserva" quality, Chianti Classico requires more years of ageing and a higher alcohol content of 12,5%. Selected Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes. These vineyards are cultivated on hilly ground with polychrome schist soils at an altitude of 400m a.s.l.
Deep ruby red, tending to garnet color with a complete, elegant and penetrating bouquet, taste full and smooth. This is a wine that accompanies noble and common game and mature cheeses. It's prime quality and structure demand excellent first courses and risotto with sauces made from wild boar and hare, and tasty red meat dishes with roast game, vegetable soufflé or mature spicy cheeses. Also a wine to accompany thought and to pleasantly continue any evening.
Tenuta Torciano Winery is situated in the heart of Tuscany, 35 minutes from Florence and 20 minutes from Siena, surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and a succession of unique greenery that features towering cypress trees, long stretches of beautiful vineyards, olive groves, forests of oaks and lovely villages.
When you visit Tenuta Torciano Winery, you will totally immerse yourself in Italian culture, together with a Tuscan family consisting of 13 generations of wine producers. Here you will experience warm hospitality and additional Tuscan traditions handed down from father to son.
One of the first wine regions anywhere to be officially recognized and delimited, Chianti Classico is today what was originally defined simply as Chianti.
Already identified by the early 18th century as a superior zone, the official name of Chianti was proclaimed upon the area surrounding the townships of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole, just north of Siena, by Cosimo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany in an official decree in 1716.
The Chianti Blend is a classic, long-established blend of wine grapes used in the wines of Tuscany, most obviously those from Chianti. The blend’s primary constituent is Tuscany's favorite grape variety, Sangiovese.
This is accompanied by small quantities of lesser-known Tuscan grape varieties Canaiolo, Colorino, Ciliegiolo and Mammolo.
