Uggiano Chianti Riserva La Scoperta
This product is currently sold out.
Winemaker Giuseppe Losapio founded Azienda Uggiano in the early 1970s, and steadily developed the estate at San Vincenzo a Torri. It is now one of the leading producers in the Chianti Colli Fiorentini zone. With 100 hectares of hillside vineyards (in both Colli Fiorentini and around neighbouring Chianti Classico, near San Casciano), Uggiano produces classic and classy Tuscan reds from the region's principal grape varieties. A core of quality runs through an unfussy, practical and exceptionally well-priced range, from bright entry level Chianti to some impressive Riserva wines. In 2015, the Losapio family sold the company to Uggiano’s young but experienced management team, including commercial manager Giacomo Fossati and Daniele Prosperi, winemaker for the past 12 vintages.
Uggiano Chianti Riserva ‘La Scoperta’ wine is a bright and characterful, fruit-forward, Chianti Riserva from the Uggiano estate south of Florence. Six months ageing in large oak casks gives a nicely mature wine with impressive depth of flavour for this price level. Vibrant black fruit aromas with a touch of spice. On the palate layers of ripe plum, blackcurrant and juicy black cherry balance spicy, developed flavours. A well-structured and complex wine with ripe tannins and bright acidity on the finish. Enjoy with rich casseroles and roast meats
