Chianti has long been regarded by many as the “most Italian” of wines, not only because it is the most widely produced classi ed wine, but also because it possesses a unique personality.
Chianti is produced in eight adjacent, yet distinct, zones that cover a vast part of central Tuscany. But only one, which is the oldest and original, may produce Chianti Classico. However, provenance alone is not su cient to merit the designation Chianti Classico. e producer must strictly adhere to all DOCG rules, which cover elements of vini cation (such as alcohol content, yield per acre, and blend) as well as aging and bottling.
Ban Chianti Classico Riserva embodies all the characteristics that have made this wine an enduring classic. Fermentation takes place with a medium period of maceration. It is followed by at least 2 years of aging, of which a minimum of 12 months is in Slavonian oak barrels. e wine concludes its evolution with at least 6 months of bottle aging.
Ban Chianti Classico Riserva is the perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of foods, including pastas, grilled meats, roasts, and aged cheeses.
