Tasting Note:

More immediate and supple than previous vintages, fruity and forthcoming but, although easy to enjoy, not too simple or light by an stretch. Initial flavours are centred around bright red cherry infused with fresh herbs to which there is a pleasing tartness and bite, and then a darker softening damson sweetness builds. a note of balsamic adds some complexity on the finish but overall this is all about pure, juicy fruit. Fresh, flowing and easy to enjoy but with a little substance behind it and with enough going on to hold your interest right the way through the bottle. This exhibits all the qualities that makes Radda Chianti great - harmonious, high altitude chianti Classico at its best. Certified Organic. A blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo. Aged for 16 months in large used French and Slavonian oak casks.
