This is the flagship wine 120 different parcels that are all vino died separately and they blend these to make the. 5-6 wines that they make. This wine has wonderful richness there is 10% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend this wine has lots of everything big but still quite balanced with a zooid amount of fresh earth and a very long finish most wxcellent

Smoke, herb, blackberry, blueberry hint. Amaryllis or eucalyptus? 3D tannins. Became even more complex after lengthy decanting. Fantastic.

Out of #coravin the nose pops out, rich baked fruit with some white pepper and spice. Firm structure. Drinking well but should continue to improve a few more years #chianticlassico

Chianti Classico DOCG 2004, 14%. A blend of 7 different Sangiovese clones, and other grapes too. We had a magnum bottle (1,5 lt) on Easter Sunday. Good color, even if a little dark. At the nose first hints of plums, then licorice, wood, a bit toasted. Good acidity in the mouth, good body, smooth tannins. 88/100

Excellent Chianti. Well aged. Earthy, dark red fruit, medium-length finish. Drank with Andolini’s pizza for Sophia’s 3rd birthday.

Striking deep purple red color, fresh red fruit nose and mouthful flavors of raspberry cherry and spices. Incredibly vibrant for a 10+ year old Chianti
