Carpineto Chianti Classico, Tuscany, Italy
Readers rated this wine:
Fragrant, smooth, delicious.
Carpineto's Chianti Classico comes from estate Sangiovese (90%) and Canaiolo vines; it was aged in casks for six months, then left to age in bottle for an additional six months in cellar.
A fragrant sweet and spicy nose of cherries, roses and vanilla, pipe tobacco, licorice and leather leads to a smooth and notably fresh palate. High-toned red fruits are woven with cedar, vanilla, tobacco and leather flavours. It's a delicious and cohesive classico with chalky cocoa tannins.
