The Riserva has 100 % Sangiovese, from which Sig. Mazzoni has managed to create a very harmonius, complex, intense, elegant and rich Chianti Classico. The wine has been aged at least months in oak barrels, and it has a very discrete note of oak. The Riserva of Corte di Valle has a good bite with a wonderful spicy note of black and green pepper that worked out very well together with some Mexican food like tacos today! A classic Tuscan dish like the Peposo (Pepper Beef Stew) would be a great deal with this Riserva.
This is actually not the first Riserva I've had from Corte di Valle. The year before I got married me and my wife ended up having a few of theirs Riserva, and ever since on our weddding day it's a Chianti Classica Riserva from Corte di Valle on our table, it has become a favourite for both me and my wife!
Corte di Valle also a wonderful production of saffron, as it is or baked pasta, cookies or even honey with saffron! Harvesting, drying and packaging saffron must be one of the most labour intensive business there are!
