Chianti Classico - Le Miccine - Tuscany - Italy
A beautiful and classic Chianti Classico with fine mature tannin, supple and engaging fruit, every part in perfect balance. The fruit is somehow crunchy; succulent red cherry shot through with plum and red berry, subtly floral on the nose.
Chianti is ancient and has evolved over the centuries to become the wine it is today. Change has been dramatic in recent years, but not at Le Miccine where the vineyards remain as they have been for generations and cellar equipment has changed little. What has changed is the technical knowledge introduced by Paola which has led to subtle changes in the way things are done. The vineyards are worked by hand, the vines are spur trained and great attention is paid to canopy management and airflow as ripeness is not guaranteed at this altitude.
This wine was awarded the maximum three glasses from the Gambero Rosso 2019.
