Rocca Guicciarda 2010
Chianti Classico Docg Riserva

In years past, Rocca Guicciarda was one of the Baroni Ricasoli's most important estates.
Today, it is the name of the estate's Chianti Classico Riserva, a traditional wine full of aromas and sensations through an austere character and complex, balanced drinkability.
The aromas and sensations of the territory.

Chianti Classico
growing season

Traditional weather conditions with a cold and snowy winter, a rainy spring, a hot summer and variable weather in September and October leading up to the 2010 harvest. Bud break was in mid-April while the veraison, even though late compared to previous years, was homogeneous on all the bunches. The grapes ripened evenly, and the bunches presented high sugar and anthocyanin concentrations.

tasting notes

Brilliant ruby red in colour. Spicy and balsamic aromas of pepper and licorice with hints of pansies and sour cherries. Well equilibrated wine, reveals clean, fragrant taste. Lots of Chianti Classico characteristics with violet and mixed berries flavours. Easy to drink.
