Origin Italy, Tuscany
Brand Castello di Verrazzano
Deep ruby red color with violet reflections, with an intense aroma, rich in fruity aromas such as cherry and blackberry that blend with floral notes. The taste is harmonious with great balance, with a good structure, savory, with oak streaks and with a fine and sweet tannic component and pleasant notes of red fruits.

The 2020 Chianti Classico is bright, floral and nicely sculpted. Crushed flowers, red cherry fruit, spice, mint and crushed rocks all run through this super-expensive, mid-weight Chianti Classico. All the elements are very nicely balanced. This is a wine of real character. Another year or so should help the tannins soften.

The organic Castello di Verrazzano 2020 Chianti Classico represents a vintage with more natural heft and texture due to the scorching hot summer season. The wine is more accessible as a result, with immediate tones of black cherry, campfire ash and spice. I recommend a near to medium-term drinking window for this 150,000-bottle release.
