Chianti

2017 Villa Calcinaia Chianti Classico DOCG

Count Sebastiano Capponi, the 20th generation to run this famous Tuscan estate is very excited with this wine. The selected grapes of the traditional red varietals of Sangiovese and Canaiolo were handpicked from the vineyards on the estate between mid-September and the beginning of October and fermented in stainless steel tanks for the production of Chianti Classico. The different blocks of Sangiovese and Canaiolo are aged in 30 hectolitre oak casks. After 20 months of ageing the cuvee is then made and aged for another 4-6 months in cement vats built inside the winery. He describes the 2017 as “the colour of the wine is ruby red with garnet shadings; a fruity flavour with traces of cherry and ripe fruit. On the palate, the wine appears to be of medium structure, typically well balanced, fully flavoured and persistent in its aftertaste.”
