The house of Casalvento, Livernano’s cantina situated in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, was purchased in 1997 by Robert Cuillo and his wife, Gudrun, and completely restored, bringing this historic property back to its former beauty. Their wines echo the estate charm. This Chianti Classico Riserva is made from 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot, which is perfected by spending 16 months in new and second-passage French oak casks.
Dense ruby-red in color. Richly aromatic with vibrant notes of dried cherries, red berries, spice and toasted notes. The palate shows a well-knit structure with firm tannins, lively acidity and smooth texture. This classic can be cellared for a few years.
Pair with beef ravioli, seared pork loin, wild boar or other roasted game.
