chianti classico DOCG 2018


This wine represents both the specific Radda terroir and the basic principle leading our commitment as winegrowers: sustainable development. It is mainly made from Sangiovese grapes. Chianti Classico Val delle Corti encapsulates the principal features of a “classic” Chianti Classico, in the best sense of the term: fresh, harmonious fruit on the nose – black cherries, wild berries, violets and juniper – bright ruby red colour, good concentrated texture, lovely acidity and, above all, an elegant and extremely delicious flavour. Chianti-grown Sangiovese grapes at their best. The years of bottle-ageing mature the wine further.

An unusual year, heavy rainfall in winter and spring, frost in April and a hot but rainy summer with cool nights. In the wineyard the prolonged humidity and heat required special attention to protect the grapes from disease. During the harvest, many selections 'freed' the best berries to ripen longer, well ventilated. A long but rich and also good harvest, with a very strict selection.
