Villa Cafaggio dates back to hundreds of years ago, when the property was named “Cahago”, which means “enclosed, cultivated field”. Villa Cafaggio has established itself as a niche producer of Chianti Classico located in Panzano in Chianti.  

Tasting Notes

The Chianti Classico Riserva has an intense ruby red colour. The bouquet is dominated by mature fruity notes, reminiscent of black bilberries. It has a full, concentrated and intense flavour. On the palate there is a very pleasant flavour of mature cherries, which lingers for a long time, with sweet tannins that blend in perfectly with the structure of the wine.

Method

The grapes are destemmed and delicately crushed to minimize damage to the skin, optimizing extraction of the colour and the soft tannins.  The alcoholic fermentation takes place in steel vats at controlled temperatures not exceeding 30°C. The micro-oxygenation that fixes the anthocyanins and stabilizes the colour is carried out over many phases of vinification.  The wine remains in contact with the skin for 2-3 days.   Malolactic fermentation is complete and the wine ages for 22 months in oak barrels followed by 6 months in bottle before release.
