James Suckling Review
I like the ripeness and energy to this Chianti Classico with a plum, walnut and dried-meat undertone. Medium body, round and juicy tannins and a savory finish. Hints of burnt orange in the center palate. Flavorful finish. 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.
FOOD PAIRINGS - Pepper braised lamb chops, penne Bolognese and grana padano.
