Tenuta di Capraia Chianti Classico 2020
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Tenuta di Capraia|
A dark and slightly brawny version, yet with concentrated black cherry, blackberry and violet flavors. The structure is dense, with fine-grained tannins. Fresh finish. Sangiovese, Colorino and Canaiolo. Drink now through 2029. 3,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
The 2020 Chianti Classico is endowed with terrific depth and presence. Dark red/purplish fruit, game, incense, iron and tobacco lend quite a bit of nuance. I suppose the 2020 is a bit rough around the edges, but I can look past that given how much complexity is in the glass. This strapping Chianti Classico has a ton to offer.
