The 2018 Chianti Classico is bright, floral and incredibly refined. In this vintage, the Chianti Classico is a bit more restrained than it can be. Bright red cherry, red plum, mint, cedar, tobacco, game licorice and rose petal all grace this very pretty, mid-weight Chianti Classico. I would cellar the 2018 for at least a few years, as it needs time to come together. Bright acids will help it age gracefully.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2038
