Il Muro Chianti Riserva 2020



The jewel in the vineyards of this Tuscan family farm, Sangiovese is aged in a mix of oak barriques and large chestnut barrels for 18 months, followed by a minimum six months in bottle for complete maturation.

Complex and full-bodied, the powerful nose displays plum pudding, black cherry and ripe mulberry, permeated by heady notes of roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate. The rich palate is smooth, velvety and well-balanced, the tannins having softened and well-integrated acidity providing a necessary cleansing tang on the finish.

With responsible cellaring this will continue to develop for up to 10 years from vintage.

Producer: Fattoria Il Muro

Il Muro estate has been owned by the Pancaro family for more than two centuries. In the 17th century, poet Francesco Redi, whose villa can be admired on the side of Poggio Mendico, celebrated the vineyards and the wines of this area, describing them as blood-red, gold-red, sparkling, bright and spicy in his well-known poem “Bacchus in Tuscany”.

Situated in the very heart of Tuscany, a few miles from the medieval city of Arezzo, the estate is actually a full working farm, extending over 65 hectares of woods, vineyards and olive groves. Fruit and vegetables are grown, and hens and pigs are raised for eggs and salumi. But the land is made for wine; 'galestro' soils, a mix of loose marl and limestone, and a temperate climate regulated by the nearby Alpe di Poti mountain range, provide the perfect terroir for traditional Tuscan grapes Sangiovese, Trebbiano, Malvasia and Vermentino.
