Maria Vittoria Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva 2020

Filled with sour red fruits, supported by ripe dark fruits, this Riserva is rich and dense, yet supremely approachable now, thanks to those supple, velvety tannins softened by time in barrel. The palate is beautifully complimented by mint, rosemary, clove and a leathery spice on the long finish.

Nestled in the hills between Sienna and Florence, Le Filigare’s 13 hectares of vines sit in the heart of the Chianti Classico region. The estate has been owned by the Cassetti Burchi family since the 1980s, with Carlo Burchi and now his son, Alessandro, carefully overseeing the restoration of the property and the vineyards. Alongside his wife Deborah and younger son Lorenzo, the family made the collective decision in 2016 to convert to biological production, to ensure respect and care for the environment as well as sustainability.

The Maria Vittoria Riserva is named after Carlo’s mother and aged for 24 months in a mixture of oak barrels and tonneaux, with a further six months in bottle before release. There are intense ripe fruit aromas of blackberry and red cherry, followed by floral notes of dried violet and rose, and fresh balsamic aromas. Elegant on the palate with velvety tannins, it is perfectly balanced with bright fruit, fresh lasting acidity, and an intriguing, lingering, mentholated finish. Truly outstanding, with great potential for ageing.
