Le Corti Cortevecchia, Chianti Classico Riserva, Corsini

Only a few kilometers from “the silvery walls of Florence”, Villa Le Corti embodies Chianti Classico. It is a perfect example of hillside landscape and history, there having been vineyards here since 1427.

Chianti Classico Riserva Cortevecchia is the most polished expression of the territory, where the Sangiovese grape benefit from a long aging in wood to develop the classic, complex aromas of a Chianti Classico. The fragrances are given time to expand, enrich, and grow. The result is a wine that perfectly expresses the variety and territory, smooth and elegant with an irreproducible texture when grown in other areas.

This wine tells the authenticity of the Sangiovese of the Chianti Classico hills with a character that the prolonged aging in wood has tamed to give depth and texture. With aromas of violet, black and red berries, balsamic herbs and roots with nuances of cocoa powder. The mouthfeel has identity and persistence, a precise tannic vein with a touch of anisette on the clear presence of the fruit, which makes it almost resinous with notes of dry mint in the end of mouth.

Villa Le Corti  has been Organically certified since 2015 and Vegan certified since 2014.
