Coltibuono Chianti Classico 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
Chopped mint, woodland herb and wild berry aromas lead the nose. Juicy and bright, the palate delivers succulent Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and white pepper accompanied by taut, refined tannins. Drink 2021-2029.
Opening to a lean, mid-weight appearance, the 2017 Chianti Classico shows a fairly ripe fruit profile due to the warm vintage, with overt tones of strawberry and dried raspberry. This Sangiovese (blended with smaller parts Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo and Colorino) is simple and straightforward, with a touch of sweetness on the close. I prefer this wine from the cooler vintages because you get more fruit detailing and focus.
Badia a Coltibuono's 2017 Chianti Classico is a soft, fruity wine to drink now and over the next handful of years, before the fruit fully fades. This is an especially light, fleeting wine, even within the context of the year.
