Coltibuono Chianti Classico 2019
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
"A very typical and beautiful Chianti Classico with cherry, burnt-orange and polished-wood aromas that follow through to a full body with round tannins and a fresh, vivid finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now." James Suckling 93 points Drink 2022-31
The 2019 Chianti Classico is gorgeous. Bright, floral and punchy, the 2019 is super-expressive right out of the gate. Sweet red berry fruit, flowers, dried herbs and spice all open in the glass, but it is the purity and energy here that impress most. I would prefer to drink the 2019 sooner rather than later, as there is a slight vegetal note that are likely to become more prominent in time.
