Cellar for up to 15 years. No need to decant before serving.

Angela Fronti, owner, and winemaker, crafts her beauty works on small Istine wineries sitting on 20 hectares in the Chianti Classico area. With a bold yet humble personality, she opted to venture into wine production, a different field from what her entire family was used to. This red wine has managed to get a couple of accolades in competitive events. The most memorable ones are the Decanter World Wine Awards in 2012 and 2013. Lately, she has expanded her market to Chicago, a clear vindication of the commencement of something special right before our eyes.

The structure of Istine Le Vigne Chianti Classico Riserva is pure and smooth. While the linger is taut and crisp, it shows light and classy flavors of blackberry, cherry, flowery, earthy, and sagebrush, which are subtle to the palate. The Le Vigne Sangiovese grapes give this wine a wide variety of aromas. They are carefully sourced from the organic Istine vineyards.

Vinification of grapes takes place in separate barrels for up to one year, after which they are put together to continue aging in oak vats. The fermentation process occurs in concrete tanks for roughly 15 days under 25 degrees. The skins need to be soaked for approximately 21 days. Exceptional when paired with lamb, beef, poultry, and veal.
