Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

Popped and poured; DIAM cork. The 2015 Casa Emma CC pours a deep ruby color with a translucent but near opaque core with no obvious staining of the tears. Medium viscosity. On the nose, medium+ intensity with notes of super funky cherry (not Brett), dried herbs, porcini, menthol and cardamom. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ tannin and medium+ acid. Finish is medium and satisfying. Confirmed are the notes of cherry accompanied by dusty earth notes and orange bitters. Drink now and enjoy. — 2 months ago

Igt Harenae Sangiovese

Having some previous experience with this wine, I knew it was going to need some significant air so I opened the night before and Audouzed until just before our dinner of Cacciucco (a traditional Tuscan seafood stew). So we’re talking close to 20 hours and I think that was just about perfect.

The 2018 “Harenae” pours a deep ruby color with a translucent core. No signs of sediment. Medium viscosity and just a slight staining of the tears. On the nose, well…I’m already swooning. The freshest Morello cherries with a mix of Tuscan herbs, black tea and dry earth. On the palate, the wine is dry with firm tannins and quite a stiff spine of acidity too. Again, the sour cherry fruit is predominate but it’s so perfectly ripened. There’s other crunchy red fruits too: some cranberry and some pomegranate along with some limestone minerals. The finish lingers for well over a minute.

It’s been 15 months since my last note on the 2018 “Harenae” and I find myself just as smitten as I was in late 2020. I’m captivated by its energy and purity of expression. Evolution has been slow and considering the structure, I fully expect this to be drinking well for at least another 8-10 years. But the freshness is really quite something to behold so I have to recommend getting that experience for those who are curious. Just give it plenty of air before you settle down with it. For what it’s worth, we drank this alongside the 2015 Paolo Bea “Santa Chiara” and both were a lovely accompaniment to the Cacciucco.
