Chianti Classico, 2020

10 cases, 7 bottles
£17.50 per bottle

Tasting Note:

Not so much an entry-level as just a “proper” Chianti Classico! Aged for a full 16 months in large Slavonian cask from vines averaging 15-20 years of age, the 2020 wafts from the glass with bright red cherries, wild strawberry, rosemary and a touch of balsamic. The tannins are ripe and pliant and, though youthful it is a joy to drink. Sangiovese 95% and Canaiolo 5% bottled at just 13% alcohol.
