Antinori Pèppoli Chianti Classico 2018

Tuscany, ItalyThe move to Bargino and the new winery signalled a significant commitment by the Antinori family to raise the level of Chianti Classico to another level. Pèppoli is an Antinori single estate making top-flight Chianti Classico. In 2018, volumes returned to more normal levels, and while it was a warm year, it wasn’t super hot, allowing the sangiovese to ripen without baking. Look for bright red fruit with a savoury, forest floor undercurrent and juicy cherry notes. The textures are silky, the acidic fresh, and the finish long. A solid effort and it will pass easily through 2025 and beyond.Tasted: 24 September 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 27.00 private wine shops Producer: Marchesi AntinoriDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
