Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2019

First time trying this popular Chianti Classico of which some 180,000 bottles are produced each year, and which retails for around £20-25. I must say, this is a very decent, polished, harmonious wine, although I found it lacking in either regional or varietal typicity and was surprised to find that it’s composed of 100% Sangiovese without any Cabernet in the blend. To me, it smelled and tasted closer to left bank Bordeaux than it did to any region of Tuscany - I don’t know if the winery’s use of French barrels contributes to this.

As I say, not a bad wine, but I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone seeking an expression of the region, or grape.

Which is not that strange as the Malvasia grape is part of the blend

Palafreno Toscana IGT SuperTuscan Blend 2012

Actually, is 100% Merlot and is fabulous. One of best I've had and would not have readily thought it would be from Tuscany for this varietal. (2,000 bottles made) — 7 years ago

Nov 2023: very nice after half an hour decant, black fruit, very soft, polished tannins. Would benefit if tannins were stronger, otherwise great wine. — a month ago

Camartina Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2004

Delightful wine. Fruit just starting to integrate with tannins. Needs another 5 years to be really enjoyable in my opinion but still very good. — 7 years ago
