Tenuta di Capraia Chianti Classico 2018
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Tenuta di Capraia|
The 2018 Chianti Classico is an absolutely beautiful, joyous wine. Freshly cut flowers, mint, tobacco, orange peel and sweet red berry fruit are laced together. Deceptive in its mid-weight structure, the 2018 possesses superb depth and tons of character. Wilder Sangiovese notes develop with time in the glass, but it is the purity of the fruit that stands out. The 2018 is positively stellar. That's all there is to it.
Made with Sangiovese, 5% Colorino and 5% Canaiolo, this has aromas suggesting black-skinned berry, underbrush and cooking spice. The juicy palate offers black cherry, clove and star anise alongside polished tannins. Drink through 2025.
