Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Badia a Coltibuono|
Opening to a lean, mid-weight appearance, the 2017 Chianti Classico shows a fairly ripe fruit profile due to the warm vintage, with overt tones of strawberry and dried raspberry. This Sangiovese (blended with smaller parts Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo and Colorino) is simple and straightforward, with a touch of sweetness on the close. I prefer this wine from the cooler vintages because you get more fruit detailing and focus. Some 133,000 bottles were released.
