Rating: 94/100 James Suckling
The climate of the 2017 vintage was an extremely regular one and respected, in its various phases and seasons, the typical weather of the Chianti Classico production zone. A cold and relatively dry winter preceded a spring characterized by damp weather in March and April and dry weather in May and June. In this period, temperatures were regular, guaranteeing a perfect growth of vegetation and an excellent phase of flowering and bud set for the grapes. The summer was a warm one, with peak temperatures in July, but also with highly positive temperature swings from daytime warmth to evening and nighttime coolness which assured a constant growth of the grape bunches free of stress. The month of August, warm as well, was characterized by occasional rainfall which favored a fine onset to the ripening of the crop. The picking took place between mid-September and early October in a climate of dry and breezy weather.
Once the crop was in the cellars, the grape bunches were destemmed and given a soft pressing. The must which was obtained went into stainless steel fermentation tanks, where it fermented for approximately a week. The period of maceration on the skins was carried out with delicate extraction methods in order to assure a full extraction which, at the same time, maintained the elegance and suppleness of the tannins and structure. After the malolactic fermentation, which took place spontaneously by the end of the year, the blended wine was aged for approximately a year in 60 gallons French and Hungarian oak barrels. A further twelve month period of bottle aging preceded commercial release.
An intense ruby red in color, the wine’s nose shows ripe red fruit along with sustained sensations of vanilla and spices. The palate is ample and enveloping, balanced and vigorous with soft and silky tannins and the finish and aftertaste and long and persistent.
