The Cultus Boni Chianti Classico Riserva has been given a new image and styling to celebrate it’s twentieth anniversary. The name has been simplified to CULTUS, a latin word which reflects the idea of work in the fields (agrorum cultus) and the history of civilization (humanus cultus).
Intense ruby red color, elegant balsamic notes mixed with flower, cherry, liquorice and chocolate. Warm on the palate, but extremely pleasant, with great harmony between its full mouthfeel and its fresh finish.
