Chianti Classico DOC

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: Italy

Region: Toscana

Grapes: 95% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot

Tasting Notes: Coltifredi Chianti Classico is an intense ruby red colored wine with a strong wild berries flavor, well integrated with a hint of spices and toasted vanilla. The taste profile is a perfect harmony with sweet tannins that make it velvety and well balanced.

Wine Enthusiast: “An expressive nose gives freshly turned soil, pencil shavings and just barely ripe strawberries and cherries before warmed spices and incense waft through. The palate shows the dame depth but exercises restraint with finely tuned tannins and perceptible acidity.”

James Suckling: “This has aromas of dark berries, tomato leaves, sour cherries, orange slices and bark. Some chocolate, too. Medium-bodied with firm, chalky tannins. Firm and flavorful. Drink after 2023.”
