Torre alle Tolfe, Chianti Colli Senesi Riserva DOCG, organic red wine, 2015

 

Sergio LoJacono is an accomplished agronomist and has been familiar with the problem of organic farming for many years. Every day he controls the vines to protect them against insect infestation and diseases, because only healthy grapes can produce good organic wine. Since the weather conditions in Tuscany are not always ideal, he produces this Torre all Tolfe Chianti Colli Senesi Riserva only in very good vintages.

 

Colour: dark purple red

Nose: the scents of this Chianti remind us of the magnificent herb garden of Torre alle Tolfe. Add to that the aromas of black cherry, dark chocolate, blackcurrant, delicate roasted aromas and the touch of orange peel.

Mouth: full bodied at the beginning, complex and compact aromas of herbs, black cherries, dark berries, fine fruit sweetness, followed by velvety tannins, subtle acidity and alcohol, which are perfectly integrated, giving a long-lasting, balanced taste and a long shelf life of this Chianti Riserva from organic production.

This Chianti Riserva impressively shows how quality-oriented the Torre Tolfe works. This also means that the production of Chianti Riserva is also waived if the required quality of the grapes is not achieved due to adverse weather conditions, as in 2017.

Serving recommendation: 16 to 18° C, aerate well, decant if necessary. Not only an ideal dining companion but also a great pleasure wine for your self.

Drink it now or keep it up to 8 years from vintage on.

Organic wine preparation Chianti Colli Senesi Riserva

The grapes (90 % Sangiovese, 10 % Merlot) for this Chianti Riserva come from a south-facing vineyard. The harvest time for the Merlot grapes is mid-September, for Sangiovese end of September. They are chosen especially carefully under perfect grapes. The duration of the maceration is 7 to 10 days, the maturation of the wine takes place in tanks and small oak barrels with 228 l content. The young wine then matures for 12 months in new "tonneau" (500 liter barrels) from Alliereiche, in which the malolactic fermentation (also called lactic acid fermentation or malolactic fermentation) takes place. The wine was bottled 2 years after the harvest and then stored for three months in bottles before it arrived in early 2018 in our warehouse.

 

Torre alle Tolfe

At Torre alle Tolfe, no grapes from foreign vineyards are purchased, but only grapes from their own vineyards are vinified and bottled in their own facilities. The responsibility for the quality of the wines and the organically maintained vineyards remain within Torre alle Tolfe.

This organically and environmentally friendly managed winery takes exemplary great care of the vines despite of the increased workload in order to avoid the risk of crop failure due to adverse climatic and weather conditions. This is serious work, fair to the environment and to the consumers.
