Lanciola Chianti Colli Fiorentini 2017

Impruneta, Florence, Tuscany, ItalyIn Greve, in the heart of the Chianti Classico area, the winery has 14 hectares, 10 of which are devoted to vineyards sitting on shale soils at approximately 300 meters. This Sangiovese is splashed with 10% of other local grapes, and fermented and rested in a mix of stainless and very large old oak barrels. Perfumed cherry, raspberry, candle wax is held with strident, lightly sticky tannins, guiding this medium bodied wine through to the bright, salted finish. Lovely food wine, especially with roast mushrooms and/or lamb.Tasted: 29 March 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
