Agricole Gussalli Beretta
The Chianti region is located in central Tuscany, Italy. It was historically associated with a squat bottle enclosed in a straw basket, called a 'fiasco' however, the fiasco is only used by a few makers of the wine now.

In 1932 the Chianti area was completely re-drawn and divided in seven sub-areas: Classico, Colli Aretini, Colli Fiorentini, Colline Pisane, Colli Senesi, Montalbano and Rùfina.

During the 1970s producers started to reduce the quantity of white grapes in Chianti. In 1995 it became legal to produce a Chianti with 100% Sangiovese. For a wine to retain the name of Chianti, it must be produced with at least 80% Sangiovese grape.
Raymond Chan
Dark, deep ruby-red with lighter garnet on the edge. The bouquet is elegant and very refined in expression with excellent intensity. Dark cherry fruit with fragrance and perfume lift shows spices and a little resinous oak. The nose reveals leather and liquorice with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly presented with refined and stylish dark red cherry fruit. This lively and vibrant, the mouthfeel with vitality and energy. Complexing nutty, resinous oak and spices are integral, and the flavours supported by very fine-grained, powdery tannin extraction and structure. The wine is dry, with drive, line and length. This is an elegant, refined, classical Chianti Riserva that will age another 10-12+ years.
