The Chianti Montalbano Riserva comes from the best selection of Sangiovese grapes from vineyards over 25 years old, located in the region of Montalbano, between 250 and 400 m altitude.
Review from Parker's Journal - Chianti Cantagallo Riserva 2016
The promise "una bottiglia per ceppo" is printed on the front label and translates into English as "one bottle per vine." That math underlines the low yields of the vineyards in which one grapevine makes only enough fruit to be pressed into one 750-milliliter bottle of wine.
The Enrico Pierazzuoli Tenuta Cantagallo 2016 Chianti Montalbano Riserva comes from a cool and classic vintage. The wine opens to tart cherry and berry aromas and then segues to light spice, earth and tobacco. These elements are all balanced and delivered with carefully measured intensity.
