Castello dei Rampolla, Chianti Classico, DOCG 2014

Grape(s)        :  Sangiovese 

Description   :

"A vivid, acidity-driven red, with accents of blood orange augmenting cherry, almond, licorice and earth flavors. Well-balanced, this lingers with echoes of almond and earth. Drink now through 2020."-WS'90

"Among the many new releases I tasted from this vintage, this wine offers an extremely pure and genuine expression of Sangiovese. The 2014 Chianti Classico shows wild and unpredictable aromas of wild berry, white almond and freshly milled peppercorn. There are subtle nuances of blue flower and moist earth as well. But this wine really excels when it comes to showing the tangy and spicy side of Sangiovese. The mouthfeel is thin and crisp, but this wine also shows introspective grace and inner elegance. The tannins are sweet and firm."-WA'90+
