Borgo Salcetino "Lvcarello" 2004 Chianti Classico Riserva
Chianti Classico, from the heartland of Tuscany, is one of Italy's iconic wine regions - the original Chianti - and, since 1924, identified by the stamp of a black rooster on gold.
The wine is Sangiovese dominant, with up to 25% of the blend permitted to be constituted from a small handful of other approved grape varieties. As a "Riserva" classification, the wine has been matured in oak for a minimum period of 21 months prior to bottling.
"Lvcarello" is a blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo from the Lucarello vineyard; matured for 24 months in oak barrels.
