Tasting Note:

More concentrated and tannic than the juicy and open 2018 but with finesse and fluidity nonetheless. The palate is awash with ripe dark morello cherry herb and sap qualities with a faint richer hint of liqueur. The tannins are ripe and wrap neatly around the fruit – this may be smooth textured but there is no doubting its seriousness. Well-built but not heavy, despite the playful exterior it has great core strength. A toned muscular quality adds a structure that is beautifully tailored to the fruit. Top notch Chianti Classico. The best example we have ever tasted from estate. 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.
