A fantastic new Chiantico Classico from one of Italy's best producers, and an amazing buy for the price. Limited. 95 Points Wine Spectator: "Offers a combination of power and elegance, with a racy feel. Wild cherry, strawberry, rose and leafy, woodsy flavors permeate this driving red. The finish is long, but this needs time to shed the tannins. Well-defined from start to finish. Sangiovese, Malvasia Nera and Merlot. Best from 2017 through 2030. From Italy." 95 Points Decanter: "Rich, creamy cherry nose, with red fruits to perk it up. Suave, velvety and very concentrated. Luxurious but spicy and lively on the finish, with super balance and length. Drink 2015‐2025."
