The terroir here is utterly classic Chianti: a high-altitude mix of the special limestone soils, known as albarese and galestro, that give Sangiovese that unique Tuscan signature.

Production is quite traditional. 90% Sangiovese is blended with Canaiolo, Colorino, and Ciliegiolo. Aging is in a mixture of cement and large wooden casks. This stands out for its refinement, its balance, and its Tuscan soul.

"Leather, underbrush and mature dark-skinned berry aromas form the nose. On the smooth, easygoing palate, buffed tannins accompany mature plum and baking spice notes. D" -Kerin O'Keefe

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

Only in vintages that merit it does Piemaggio produce a Riserva, which spends an extra year in cask but is otherwise produced in the same fashion as the flagship wine, and from the same basic blend of grape varieties: 90% Sangiovese with 10% Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, and Colorino. As with the basic Chianti Classico, there is a sense of analog warmth here, with tannins refined through time but retaining a bit of grain; this, thankfully, is not a wine that has been buffed clean by technology.
