Uggiano Chianti Riserva ‘La Scoperta’

£10.75

A bright and characterful, fruit-forward, Chianti Riserva. Six months ageing in large oak casks gives a nicely mature wine with impressive depth of flavour for this price level

The mainly Sangiovese grapes (plus 10% Canaiolo) are harvested from hillside vineyards, and transported to the winery to be vinified. The must undergoes temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel. Pumping over twice a day extracts colour and tannin from the skins. After around 2 weeks, the wine is racked to large (30-60hl) oak casks for 6 months.

Ripe red berry aromas with a touch of spice. On the palate layers of fresh plum, blackcurrant and juicy red cherry balance spicy, developed flavours. A well-structured, complex and authentic Riserva with rounded tannins and a generous, peppery finish.
