The Chianti Classico Riserva is produced only in the most deserving years. It is a wine that comes from the selection of the best Sangiovese grapes in general from the oldest vineyards of Casavecchia facing south and from the Sicellino vineyard planted in the 70s with north-east exposure; they are both vineyards rich in stone, with particularly low yields per hectare.
