James Suckling Review
This shows beautiful freshness and poise, thanks to vivid dark cherries and bright herbs. Medium body with fine-grained tannins, loads of tangy fruit and a finely tuned yet structured finish. Salty aftertaste. Delicious. Drink now.
Wine Tasting Notes
A cool and late year. In years like this, the terroir always outshines the fruit. On the nose you sense the stony minerality along with rose petals, strawberries on the vine and subtle orange spice. The structure is elegant and refined, with lovely fresh, vibrant flavors of pomegranate and bright cherries. The acidity is lively and carries the finish of nutmeg and fresh orange peel. The vintage is a classic cool year for Chianti Classico with fresh fruits and a driving minerality throughout the entire wine. A fantastic wine to pair with food.
