Estate-grown Chianti Classico DOCG
90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and Syrah
Intense red fruit aromas with light hints of vanilla and coffee. A well-structured wine with smooth, sweet tannins of nice length with fruity flavours. This wine is made to be enjoyed fairly young, while the fruit is at its fullest expression.
|89 Points Steven Tanzer: Bright red-ruby. Redcurrant, dusty herbs and flowers on the nose, complemented by sweet spices. Supple and vinous, showing easy sweetness and plenty of bright fruit. Seems more concentrated, precise and deep than any recent Peppoli vintage I can think of. Finishes with good grip and moderately long sweet fruit flavors. Makes a great pizza wine, but can also match up to more complex dishes as well this vintage. Very good, solid entry-level wine, and an even better value than usual.
