Chianti Classico Riserva 2020 ENG

The 2020 vintage began with a relatively warm winter and spring that resulted in the vines budding and flowering early. Temperatures only dropped in the first 3 weeks of June only to rise again immediately and remain high throughout the summer, although they never reached peaks highs for long periods.

We had a particularly dry winter, but it rained abundantly in May and the first half of June. Rain stopped almost completely over the summer, only to start again towards the end of August and during the harvest. We can say therefore that summer was generally hot and dry and the vines only underwent moderate water stress. Harvest took place about a week earlier than is usual in recent years. When harvested, the grapes were perfectly healthy with thick skins and ripe seeds, even the ones harvested last when rain had begun again. The 2020 vintage has produced Volpaia wines that are a bright colour and have a good acidity level without an excessive alcohol content. Compared to previous years they seem less concentrated but are more elegant.

Radda in Chianti, vineyards located between 400 and 600 meters a.s.l. Organic project, Sangiovese and Merlot grapes which are manually harvested, maceration on the skins, great workmanship in winery. On the nose, blueberries and blackberries, a good balsamic trace. Juicy, fresh and crunchy on the palate with salty and deep tannins.

Castello di Volpaia Grande eleganza nel bicchiere per un vino che presenta una lodevole integrità al naso di frutto. Pulito e deciso, seducente e signorile. 96

A red with plenty of ripe fruit, such as berries and cherries with some fresh-herb and lemon undertones. It’s medium-to full-bodied with bright fruit and fine tannins. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

Bright ruby red in colour. Black cherry and raspberry fruit. Mid weight. Breadth of flavour, tension and yet suppleness. Great effort made here.

The 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Volpaia is an immensely rewarding, inviting wine. Juicy and racy, with no hard edges, the Riserva captures the allure of this warm, dry year. There is plenty to like in the 2017, starting with its depth and volume, I won't be surprised if the Riserva turns out to be even better than this note suggests. Sweet red fruit, cedar and blood orange give the 2017 striking aromatic intensity and lift.

History of wine

Riserva is the best representation of the tradition.
An iconic wine that the Mascheroni Stianti family have been producing since 1967, when only very few producers used to produce a Chianti Classico Riserva. It’s produced with 100% of Sangiovese coming from some of the highest vineyards of the Chianti. The unique microclimate and the soil composition of “macigno Toscano” donate to this Sangiovese some of its outstanding complexity and elegance.
