All Chianti wines are made from the Sangiovese grape; this riserva comes from the top subregion of Chianti Rufina.
What You Need To Know
Centered around the hilltop towns northeast of Florence, Chianti Rufina is Chianti’s smallest subregion and lies at its highest elevation. Colder nights mean that grapes develop thicker skins and preserve more acidity, which produce wines with firmer tannins, less up-front fruit and a structure that rewards aging. I Veroni is an estate winery in Pontassieve that was once part of the sprawling feudal domains of the Dukes of Guidi. Purchased by the Malesci family in the early 1900s, it’s run today with impressive dedication by greatgrandson Lorenzo Mariani, who took over in 1996. This riserva comes from a small selection of the top lots of the estate’s Sangiovese. Aged for a year-and-a-half in French oak barrels, it offers a polished, muscular take on the region’s structured reds.
