Chianti Riserva

The story

Chianti Vecchio was Ruffino’s flagship product when it was founded in 1877. This riserva aspires to follow in the same footsteps as a special occasion wine.

Winemaking notes

The fermentation was extended for about 9 days, with frequent pumpover, in temperature controlled stainless steel vats at 27°C. Additional skin maceration continues for 5 days, followed by malolactic fermentation.


Deep ruby red.


Fine aromas give way to elegant cherry compote. Light spices lead to a delicate woody finish.

Tasting profile

Refined flavors, rarefied tannins and medium body comprise this wine of outstanding personality.

Full tasting Notes

Despite the long refinement, this riserva remains upbeat and devoid of signs of evolution.
