2014 was a cool and late year. In years like this, the terroir always outshines the fruit. On the nose you sense the stony minerality along with rose petals, strawberries on the vine and subtle orange spice. The structure is elegant and refined, with lovely fresh, vibrant flavors of pomegranate and bright cherries. The acidity is lively and carries the finish of nutmeg and fresh orange peel. The 2014 vintage is a classic cool year for Chianti Classico with fresh fruits and a driving minerality throughout the entire wine. A fantastic wine to pair with food.
