Istine Chianti Classico 2019

Tuscany, ItalyThis organic sangiovese comes off vineyards in Radda in Chianti, Gaiole in Chianti, Tibuca, and Le Noci, averaging 500m, and from a mix of marly limestones and clay. It fermented for over eight weeks in concrete and stainless before aging in a combination of Slavonian oak (10hl, 20hl, 40hl) and concrete tanks over one year. Perfumed cherries and raspberries flow through a graceful supple leather-lined palate with bright, lifted acidity and sticky, long tannins. Quite polished and drinking well now.Tasted: 23 June 2023Tasted by: Prices:
