The Chianti Classico Riserva “Doccio a Matteo” 2016 is the wine of great range of Caparsa. This wine is produced from Sangiovese grapes with a small percentage of Colorino hand-picked mainly in the Doccio a Matteo vineyard which make it one of the most classic wines produced in the Chianti Mountains.

Caparsa offers its admirers a high-quality spontaneous wine, a normal warm summer vintage.  Vivid scents, black fruit, fresh tannins accompanied by a surprising roundness, all accompanied by a gentle spiciness. Long life. A compelling blend of perfumed florals melting into richly textured blackberry, sloe and chocolate. Outstanding wine with a monastic beauty.

The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Doccio a Matteo is powerful and deep, with tons of intensity and structure. High-toned aromatics add character along with an element of rusticity that nevertheless works quite well here.

Macerated cherry, plum, leather, cloves, menthol and co!ee all develop with time. A dollop of Colorino contributes further shades of nuance and complexity. The Doccio a Matteo is a compelling wine done in a decidedly old-school leaning style.
