Revisiting Timeless Favorites: Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Riserva, and the 'Aleah' Merlot

Before we delve into the differences between Villa Mangiacane's Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Riserva, and their exclusive Aleah Merlot, let's first understand the distinctions between Chianti, Chianti Classico, and Chianti Classico Riserva wines in general. These three designations represent varying levels of quality, aging, and production rules within the Chianti region of Tuscany. As we move from Chianti to Chianti Classico and finally to Chianti Classico Riserva, we experience an increase in quality, depth, complexity, and aging potential.

Now, let's explore Villa Mangiacane's exceptional renditions of Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Riserva, and Aleah Merlot wines:

Chianti Classico: Villa Mangiacane's Chianti Classico is a true representation of the region, crafted from at least 80% Sangiovese grapes. With a minimum aging period of 12 months, this elegant and balanced wine showcases notes of red fruit, earth, and spice. It captures the essence of the Chianti Classico sub-region, which is known for its superior terroir and more stringent production regulations.

Chianti Classico Riserva: Taking the Chianti Classico to new heights, Villa Mangiacane's Chianti Classico Riserva undergoes a more extended aging process, at least 24 months (with a minimum of 3 months in bottle), before release. This additional time allows for greater development of flavours and complexity, resulting in a more full-bodied and robust wine. Expect both red and dark fruit, floral violet, roasted oak, and tobacco flavours, along with a velvety texture and more refined tannins.

‘Aleah’ Merlot: The 2017 Aleah Merlot is a testament to Villa Mangiacane's dedication to quality and innovation. This luxurious Merlot presents a rich palate of black cherry, plum, and chocolate, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Though not a Chianti wine, it is an excellent example of Villa Mangiacane's expertise in crafting exquisite wines that leave a lasting impression.

Whether you're a seasoned wine connoisseur or just starting your journey into the world of fine wines, Villa Mangiacane's offerings are sure to leave a lasting impression. From their newly-released Vermentino and Rosso wines to their timeless works Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Riserva, and the ‘Aleah’ Merlot, these exclusive and exquisite wines are waiting to be discovered and enjoyed.
