Tenuta di Capraia Chianti Classico 2019
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Tenuta di Capraia|
Chianti Classico Tenuta di Capraia is a wine with an optimal complexity and structure. Ruby red colour with violet tinges. Intense and rich aroma, vinous, fruit-driven. Pleasant cherry notes, refreshing and well-balanced with hints of integrated vivid tannin. Pairs with white meat, red meat and medium-aged cheese.
Black plum and blackberry flavors saturate this concentrated red, accented by earth, menthol and a touch of anise. It's beefy and compact on the finish. Sangiovese, Colorino and Canaiolo. Drink now through 2025. 5,000 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.
The 2019 Chianti Classico is hard, angular and compact. Dried cherry, scorched earth, licorice, tobacco and cedar give the 2019 its savory personality. There is good focus and plenty of energy at first impression, but also an element of austerity that keeps the wine from being full expressive. I expected more.
