The 2017 Chianti Classico is supple, racy and inviting, with striking textural depth and phenomenal balance. Succulent dark cherry fruit gives the 2017 much of its immediacy and appeal. Silky, plush and exceptionally harmonious, the 2017 captures all of the natural radiance of the year. Sweet floral and spice notes add lift to this sophisticated, beautifully polished Chianti Classico from Montesecondo. Quite simply, this is a phenomenal wine for the vintage.
From the Producer
The Chianti Classico Montesecondo represents the territorial expression of three native vines; sangiovese, canaiolo and colorino which are assembled at the harvest. The aging, partly in medium sized casks and partly in cement basins, confers softness and balance to the wine. The majority of the grapes are picked from older vines with a planting density of 3300 plants per hectare in order to fully capture the complexity and length that the fruit of such plants confers.
