Chianti Classico PDO can be made available for consumption from October 1st of the year following that in which the grapes were produced. Riserva and Gran Selezione wines can only be put on the market after they have undergone an aging period of at least 24 and 30 months respectively, with at least 3 months maturing in bottles. If the bottles have already been labelled and sealed with the Italian State Mark, maturing may also take place outside the vinification area. The aging period commences January 1st of the year following that in which the grapes were harvested. Chianti Classico Gran Selezione wine must be produced exclusively from the vineyards of the bottling company.
