The Chianti Riserva Prestige DOCG by Uggiano is a wine that enchants the senses and celebrates the essence of Tuscany. Produced predominantly from Sangiovese grapes, this wine is a tribute to Italian winemaking tradition. Its color is an intense ruby red with garnet hues. On the nose, you'll detect notes of sour cherry, wild berries, and violet, enriched by nuances of vanilla. On the palate, the wine is round and well-structured, with a pleasantly tannic and persistent aftertaste. The aging process takes place in French oak barrels for 12-14 months, followed by a further 6-8 months in large oak casks. Ideal for pairings with roast lamb with rosemary and garlic, roast or braised veal, especially with mushrooms, and game meats like pheasant and wild boar.

The Uggiano farm was founded in 1976 in Scandicci in the hamlet of San Vincenzo a Torri, in the heart of Chiati dei Colli Fiorentini, from the idea of a group of entrepreneurs from Bergamo who were passionate about Tuscan wines.
The vineyards, located at an altitude that varies between 250 and 300 meters above sea level, are cultivated with respect for the environment and the ecosystem to obtain the grapes in the most natural way possible. In the cellar we work in such a way as to respect as much as possible the characterization of the territory and to have wines of the utmost excellence capable of representing the best enology of the Florentine hills.
