Borgo Scopeto Vigna Misciano Chianti Classico Riserva 2017 75 CL

Toscana Rosso – Italy

Riserva “Single vineyard” Vigna Misciano is made from 100% Sangiovese from the castle’s largest vineyard, which bears the name of a small village nearby that was abandoned by its inhabitants in the 15th century: Misciano. The field itself lies at an altitude of 360 m with a limestone and sandstone subsoil, and faces south-west. The first production year for this wine was 1998.

After finished fermentation and a spontaneous malolactic fermentation in steel tanks, the wine is aged for 18-24 months in a combination of large Slavonian wooden barrels (30 hl.) and French barrels (durmast, 500 l.), and a further 8 months in bottle before shipping .

The color of the wine is deep red and in the aroma, delicate aromas of rose petals first appear. The wine develops quite quickly in the glass, giving more complex tones of burnt almonds, coffee beans and spices. In the aftertaste you sense the wine’s velvety character, because even though at Borgo Scopeto they say that the wine can easily be stored for 12-15 years, it already gives up a lot in its youth. Try it together with game dishes, duck, veal or with firm cheeses.

The wine is not a modern invention in Tuscany. Although the Romans preferred Italian wines from the south, the Etruscans (700 BC – 450 BC) had a lively wine production and wine trade in the area. However, it was the monasteries that reintroduced viticulture in the wooded hills of Tuscany in the Middle Ages. Wine was part of daily life in Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca and Arezzo. With the spread of the Renaissance – with Florence as the center – wines from the area gained rapid recognition. Red wines, but also sweet Vin Santo, were known everywhere. The poet Fulvio Testi wrote in the 16th century: ‘Chianti from Etruscan kisses you, bites you and makes you cry sweet tears’.
The Chianti district saw a much-needed tightening of legislation when, in 1984, it achieved Italy’s highest DOCG classification. It has clearly contributed to giving the area a quality boost and a well-deserved renaissance. At the same time, they have opened up to a limited use of other grape varieties in the wines. Chianti wines have never been better than today!
