Bright ruby red with purple reflections on the rim, the bouquet is quite complex; toasty hints and spicy notes dominated by a fine vanilla overtone are followed by aromas of red fruit, cherry and sweet violet. It is full-bodied, warm and dry on the palate with decisive tasty tannins.
We imagined this tasty Chianti Riserva paired with a classic dish of Tuscany, sliced chianina beef with potatoes.
Chianti Riserva DOCG “Collezione Privata Alberto Ravazzi Borioso” 2014 - Ravazzi: Why we like it
Fermented in wooden vats, Chianti Riserva DOCG “Collezione Privata Alberto Ravazzi Borioso” refines for no less than 24 months in French oak casks and rests for a further 3 months in the bottle before being considered ready for placing on the market. The only DOCG in the Alberto Ravazzi Private Collection, “Borioso” is created from an inescapable interaction between the style of Ravazzi Wineries and the wine making tradition of Chianti − it is a modern wine, recognisable for the exquisite aromatic definition and crispness of the fruit, with an unmistakeable personality that does not lose any of its Chianti accent.
