The 2018 Chianti Classico is a textbook expression from the appellation. This Sangiovese-based wine shows latitude and depth with elegant aromas of wild berry, forest floor, dried blueberry, honey, lavender and rosemary essence. There are hints of chalk or crushed limestone that recall the unique soils of the Gaiole in Chianti growing region. The tannins are elegantly integrated, and the wine offers enough natural freshness to pair with a hearty pappardelle al sugo di cinghiale.

The 2018 Chianti Classico is bright, floral and incredibly refined. In this vintage, the Chianti Classico is a bit more restrained than it can be. Bright red cherry, red plum, mint, cedar, tobacco, game licorice and rose petal all grace this very pretty, mid-weight Chianti Classico. I would cellar the 2018 for at least a few years, as it needs time to come together. Bright acids will help it age gracefully.
