Sangiovese from Chianti Classico, Chianti, Tuscany, Italy. Estate-grown, hand-harvested grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks with approximately 15 days' maceration. During fermentation, delestage, and pumping-over take place twice a day. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is racked into barrels and 4,000-liter casks where it matures for about one year.
| Critical Acclaim
James Suckling 93: This is a really authentic and beautiful Chianti Classico, offering cherries, orange peel and light undertones of nuts and bark. It’s medium-bodied, very polished and integrated with a fresh, juicy finish. Drink now.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91: With 114,000 bottles produced, this is a terrific value buy from one of the best performing estates in the appellation. The 2018 Chianti Classico is made with 82% Sangiovese that has been blended with 15% Canaiolo and 3% Syrah from a mix of sandstone, galestro and alberese soils. The wine is fresh and fruit forward with bright berry aromas over easy spice and smoky tar.
