chianti classico DOCG Riserva 2017


 

A vintage year from a climatic point of view - from the winter drought we moved on to late frosts in April and the big rains in June. Then an intense and warm summer with blessed rains at the right time. Unusually regular harvest with homogeneous maturity in all the vineyards.

2016 is born already great wine, very 'raddese'. It has a perfect balance between acidity and softness and between a striking black cherry fruit and flowers.

 

“A masterpiece. Difficult and maybe useless to give another definition for Roberto Bianchi's Riserva '16. A wine that smells of cellar humors, the flavour is the most faithful to the idea we have of Radda and of Chianti Classico Sangiovese in general. Finish of sensational flavor and length.”
