Chianti Riserva Docg is a Demeter-certified red wine produced by Azienda Agricola Casale 1770 in Certaldo, in the province of Florence, Tuscany. It is made from Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino grapes that ferment spontaneously with indigenous yeasts and macerate 30 days in cement. Refinement always takes place in cement for 8 long years, and to finish 2 years in large casks. It rests in glass 4 years. The entire vinification process takes place naturally, clarification by gravity and tartaric stabilisation with the first winter cold. Chianti Riserva is an extraordinary wine with truly long ageing potential. The nose is a pot pourri of roses and violets and hints of red fruits in jam and under spirits, with distinct notes of incense. Try it with a great meat

Certaldo, Florence

The Azienda Agricola Casale is nestled in the Montagnola Senese, a land of ancient and renowned winemaking tradition.

This is where the winery produces great wines, including Chianti Colli Senesi, made by Giovanni Borella from Sangiovese, Canaiolo Nero, Trebbiano and Malvasia Lunga, whose tradition dates back to 1770.

The magical terroir of the Val d'Elsa yields grapes of great prestige from the 12 hectares of estate vineyards, with vines even 60 years old, with an average yield between 30 and 60 Q/ha Casale 1770 is Demeter certified biodynamic since 1995.

Every stage of the production chain is handled with care and respect for nature and wine. As early as 1985, the Giglioli family converted the then 8 hectares under vine to biodynamic, and this was because the beneficial effects of this approach to viticulture were immediately noticeable; the method used is the Australian biodynamic method of Alex Podolinsky.

Annual bottle production varies between 20000 and 30000 bottles, all of the highest quality.

The most difficult task for the staff at Azienda Agricola Casale is precisely the vinification phase in order not to lose even an iota of quality from the grapes, avoiding processing errors with maniacal handling in the early stages.

There is no filtration, the wines are not clarified, nor are proteins or exogenous polyphenols used in the cellar.

Fermentation is spontaneous with indigenous yeasts, with no addition of sulphur dioxide.

Once the grapes ferment and transform, the wine will be aged in three possible containers: steel, cement or wood. It all depends on the type of grapes obtained in the vintage and the decisions of the winemakers in the cellar.
