The Pellegrini family’s bonds with the world of wine date back to the end of the eighteenth century, first when it opened a tavern, and later when it began selling wine and must on a wholesale basis in the northern Italian region of Lombardy. When it acquired Fattoria di Petrognano in the 1960s, the family’s winegrowing experience began. Emanuele Pellegrini represents now the fourth generation of Fattoria di Petrognano leads the company with fundamental principles: showcasing tradition through the spirit of applied research, environmental sustainability and passion.

Grape variety: Sangiovese 95%, Canaiolo 5%

Vinification: MEME Chianti Riserva comes from the best grapes present in the best parcels of the company’s historic vineyards, which are around 60 years old. This provides the grapes with a longer maceration time, with the goal of achieving a more concentrated Sangiovese with a long life span. Its more concentrated profile requires longer ageing in cement and large barrels, as well as months of ageing in the bottle. It is only produced during the best vintages.18-month refinement in small oak barrels.

Tasting notes: A purplish red wine that is unfiltered, resulting in an opaque colour. It has a complex scent with notes of sweet spices, cloves, liquorice, medicinal herbs and dried flowers. As it opens up in the glass, it takes on notes of dried red fruits and leather. On the palette, it has an initial freshness with lively tannins and good balance. The hot harvest left it quite dense, with a concentration of dry tannins that are well integrated. It has a long life span and promises exciting surprises.

Food pairing: Excellent with roast pork, boar and lamb, goose or duck dishes, and hard cheeses. If stored under ideal conditions, it will reach peak maturity in 20 years.

Alcohol content: 14% vol.

Serving temperature: 16-18°C
