(2021) A Chianti Classico that is made from hand-harvested Sangiovese, 30% of which is aged in barriques, the rest in large oak casks for 18 months. Solid, sweet plum flesh and cherry on the nose, a nice touch of background tobacco spice, a little lick of vanilla too. In the mouth the fruit is sweet and ripe, more cherry and blackcurrant, but savoury and firm. Some dried blood and gravelly character gives grip. Quite dry tannins here, a touch rustic and it's bright edge of acidity makes this savoury, quite chewy, but satisfying. No UK stockist at time of review.
