2021 Chianti Classico



While our Chianti Classico is unmistakably Tuscan in origin, it offers a level of depth, power, and concentration that is rare for its classification. The fruit—mostly Sangiovese—comes from some of the coolest blocks at our estate, which accounts for the wine’s vibrant acidity. The dominant flavors include plums, earth, cherries, licorice, and cedar.

Harvest Notes

A spectacular vintage in Chianti Classico. A mild, wet winter provided an optimal growing season. With sufficient water reserves from the rainfall, the vines endured the hot and dry summer well. Noticeable diurnal shifts at the estate are showcased in this near-perfect vintage through lower yields and high-quality grapes expressing vibrant, concentrated acidity and powerful tannins.

Tasting Notes

A Chianti Classico that truly embodies a sense-of-place. A gorgeous wine with aromas of tart cherries, strawberries, and violets. A soft and exciting structure invites notes of blueberries, cedar and red oranges on the palate. Each sip is framed by pleasant acidity and finishes with warm notes of white pepper and licorice.
