PIETRO BECONCINI – Riserva Chianti DOCG
Chianti Riserva DOCG
The wine dedicated to my father, thanks to him BECONCINI was a pioneer in the cultivation of the vine in this area.
The old Chianti Riserva vineyards were planted 60 years ago by Pietro Beconcini and allow me today to preserve the style and authentic expression of this wine in its most important version.
Here in San Miniato, Chianti has been produced right from the establishment of the Production Code, almost a century ago now; in fact, large quantities of San Miniato grapes still go to the great Florentine wine houses.
I make these wines today following the traditions handed down in my family, but with the same beliefs and techniques that I adopt for my more ambitious wines. Thus, I follow a quite different path from a great part of Tuscany, since for these wines too I use no international varieties, and my winemaking practices remain straightforward and respectful of the fruit.
Vinification & Maturation
Chianti Riserva DOCG PIETRO BECONCINI, on the other hand, hews to tradition and matures one year and a half in Slavonian oak, then spends up to 30 months in the bottle before release.
