JS 93 WA 92 WS 92 - From beautiful Tuscany, the Le Corti Don Tommaso Chianti is mostly Sangiovese with a small portion of Merlot for balance and structure. Earthy with cherry, chocolate and floral notes. Would pair beautifully with duck, but of course, any Italian dish would pair well.

Description

Details

JS 93 WA 92 WS 92 Pts - According to James Suckling - A big and juicy style for a Chianti Classico with berries and wood character. Full body, lots of flavors and a intense finish. This is a mouthful and very enjoyable. What tension on the finish. Drink now.

According to Wine Advocate - Released later than most Chianti Classicos, the 2008 Chianti Classico Don Tommaso sees 20% Merlot added to Sangiovese and you most certainly feel it. The Merlot component adds huge softness and plushness that makes this wine stand apart from the other denomination wines made by this estate. It’s truly beautiful in the mouth with a supple, velvety feel. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

According to Wine Spectator - Chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla and coconut notes add interest to the central flavors of violet, black currant and black cherry. Beautifully balanced, with a long, lingering aftertaste of fruit and spice. Drink now through 2018. 15% ABV.
