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.
