Buy Villa Puccini Chianti Riserva
A brilliant ruby color, violets and strawberries inthe nose, a dry, fruity, harmonious taste and a pleasant finish. Vinified to be enjoyed young.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points - Soft is the key word for the nose with hints of cherry pit, warm olives in oil and rosemary, and red plum skin. Lighter-bodied in the mouth with fresh berry fruits, tar, and grippy tannins leading into a red-fruited finish dotted with citrus.  (Jun 2016)

Wine maker notes
Villa Puccini Chianti Riserva is made in the fashion of a young Bordeaux. Unlike the Gran Crus of the Medoc or the Chianti Classico Riservas of Tuscany, these dry reds are vinified to capture the quality and essence of more austere and longer-lived counterparts, but in a classy, easy, and friendly style. A careful selection of premium vinifera grapes (primarily Sangiovese) is followed by a temperature controlled fermentation and a minimum of one year of aging in large oak casks, plus 3 months more in the bottle. The resulting dry reds are pleasant, vibrant and delicious, without the tannins of more costly Tuscan reds. If you are looking for excellent value in Chianti Riserva, try Villa Puccini. Enjoy it young, although it will develop with moderate cellaring.

Food pairing
Poultry, pizza, burgers, pastas with tomato and meat sauces, stews, chicken or veal parmigiana. Steaks, roasts, grilled veal.

More than a decade ago, HeyDay Corporation entered into a joint venture with Villa Puccini and Dr. Sabino Russo, a dynamic young enologist who works on an estate near Pisa, to produce premium Italian wines for sale in the USA. These fine wines of Villa Puccini are aged and bottled at state of the art wineries throughout Tuscany. Results have been extremely rewarding. From the vine to the bottle, great care is taken to assure quality, consistency, and authenticity.
