Guido Gualandi | Chianti Colle Florentini | Montebetti Riserva 2011 | D.O.C.G. This Chianti riserva has been made closely following the Chianti tradition using only Tuscan varieties. Excess grape bunches are eliminated in August and during the September harvest, and the Sangiovese bunches are also trimmed as they tend to be too heavy. The grapes are picked by hand using “bigonce,” a type of traditional basket. Some of the non destemmed grapes are foot-pressed, others are destemmed and then fermented together in the wooden vat. Once fermentation is completed, the liquid is transferred to Italian oak barrels for about ten months before bottling. A small quantity of sulphites is added when bottling.The Montebetti Riserva is not filtered. A deposit may form. Harvest: mid-September to end of September Fermentation on the skins and 30% stems for over 15 days. The best tasting barrel is kept for 2/3 years to age and then bottled.
