Chianti Riserva Casanova Red Wine - Sangiovese
We have always been committed to emphasizing uniqueness. This concept is expressed in the production of a Chianti using only Sangiovese grapes grown within a single vineyard. The sandy soil rich in calcium carbonate gives a floral bouquet, with notes of berries, violets, and Mediterranean spices. On the palate it is dry, harmonious, savory, and velvety at the same time.
Vineyards within the municipality of Terricciola (Casanova).
Maceration and alcoholic fermentation in temperature-controlled vats for an average period of 14-15 days. Malolactic fermentation done in used (2nd passage) French oak barrels, followed by 24 months of aging. Finally, bottle-aged for about 6 months.

One of Piedmont’s iconic modern wineries, the history of La Spinetta goes back to 1977 and Giuseppe Rivetti who established the original winery at Castagnole Lanze. Since then it is the second generation, spearheaded by Giorgio Rivetti, that has put La Spinetta on the map with the development of vineyards and estates, talented winemaking and an endless desire to try new things.
