2017 Chianti Classico, San Giusto a Rentennano, Tuscany (6 x Bottle)

Italy Tuscany

The 2017 Chianti Classico is rich, ample and beautifully textured, with all of the natural richness of the year on display. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, mocha, spice and licorice infuse a decidedly dark, brooding Chianti Classico. A dollop of whole clusters adds freshness and perfume, but readers should expect a big, potent Chianti Classico with serious fruit intensity as well as structure. I would prefer to cellar the 2017 to allow some of the baby fat to melt away.

Mid crimson. Earthy cherry nose with plenty of depth. Succulent, concentrated and with long, gripping tannins and with minerally notes. Proper tangy finish. Quite a triumph for this very hot vintage
