Chianti Riserva Casanova DOCG

Chianti DOCG Riserva Casanova

Harmonious, dry, velvety

We have always been committed to emphasizing uniqueness. This concept is expressed in the production of a Chianti using only Sangiovese grapes grown within a single vineyard. The sandy soil rich in calcium carbonate gives a floral bouquet, with notes of berries, violets, and Mediterranean spices. On the palate it is dry, harmonious, savory, and velvety at the same time.
