The powerful Fanatico Chianti Classico Riserva from Villa Trasqua comes in the glass with dense crimson. At the edge, this Italian red also shows a transition to violet. This Italian cuvée reveals wonderfully expressive notes of black cherries, mulberries, plums and blueberries in the glass. In addition, there are hints of oriental spices, vanilla and garigue.
The Villa Trasqua Fanatico Chianti Classico Riserva impresses with its elegantly dry taste and was put on the bottle with only 0.3 grams of residual sugar. As you can of course expect with a wine, this Italian naturally enchants with the finest balance in all dryness. Aroma does not necessarily need sugar. This dense red wine is impressive and complex on the palate. Thanks to the balanced fruit acidity, the Fanatico Chianti Classico Riserva flatters with a soft palate without letting it miss freshness at the same time. The finale of this very maturable red wine from the wine-growing region of Tuscany, more precisely from Chianti DOCG, finally convinces with remarkable reverberation. The finish is also accompanied by mineral facets of the soils dominated by limestone and clay.
Vinification of Villa Trasqua Fanatico Chianti Classico Riserva
This powerful red wine from Italy is made from the grape varieties Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. In Tuscany, the grapes produced for this wine grow on soils of clay, sand, limestone and marl. The Fanatico Chianti Classico Riserva is an old world wine through and through, because this Italian exudes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underlines the success of wines from the old world. After harvesting, the grapes quickly reach the press house. Here you will be selected and carefully broken up. This is followed by fermentation in a stainless steel tank at controlled temperatures. The fermentation is followed by ageing for a few months on the fine yeast before the wine is finally bottled. The ageing in the barrel is followed by a long bottle maturation, which makes this red wine even more complex.
