Villa Calcinaia Chianti Classico 2017
The color of the wine is ruby-red with garnet shadings; a fruity flavor with traces of cherry and ripe fruit. On the palate, the wine appears to be of medium structure, typically well balanced, fully flavored and persistent in its aftertaste.
Harvested by hand and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The varietals are aged separately for 20 months in oak casks. The cuvee is further aged for 4 to 6 months in cement tanks before bottling.
90/100 James Suckling – “A bright, vivid red with black cherries and citrus undertones. Medium body. Fresh finish. Very fresh for the vintage. On the linear side. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.”
91/100 Wine Enthusiast – “Villa Calcinaia 2017 Chianti Classico. Made with organically farmed Sangiovese, this opens with aromas of rose petal, violet and leather. The juicy, savory palate delivers cherry, strawberry, cinnamon and a hint of eucalyptus alongside polished tannins and fresh acidity. Enjoy through 2027”
