2013 Uggiano Chianti Riserva
Uggiano was founded in the mid-70's by a pair of local businessmen. They were, presumably, looking to produce some brag-worthy wine and pour it for their friends. It worked, and the winery has prospered.
A complex bouquet with notes of black cherry, fruits of the wood and rich violet, accompanied by marked vanilla notes. Optimal consistency and roundness with pleasantly tannic aftertaste.
Chianti Riserva is aged for two years before bottling and then sees a little bottle age before release.
