"A very fresh 2017 with plenty of tight & linear tannins that give the wine energy & drive. Medium to full body. Racy finish. This is impressive. Fantastic texture & complexity on the palate with purple fruit & wet earth. Drink or hold". ---James Suckling

"The 2017 Chianti Classico Berardenga is an absolutely gorgeous wine. Racy, powerful & sumptuous in the glass, the 2017 offers terrific depth & textural resonance. Sweet black cherry, plum, mocha, licorice & spice bring out the darker side of Sangiovese. Bold & racy, the 2017 will drink beautifully right out of the gate."
"Chianti Classico is the cornerstone of the estate’s production. The vineyards are located in Castelnuovo Berardenga, in the southeastern part of the Chianti Classico appellation, to the southeast of Siena. Almost exclusively with a southwestern exposure, they sprawl across ventilated slopes at an altitude ranging from 320-420 meters above sea level. Geologically, the terrains are mixed: in the higher parts the soil is predominantly rock quartz and calcareous alberese mixed with alluvial pebbles; strataform sandstone and loam characterize the vineyards on the edge of the Colli Senesi in the direction of the Crete Senesi. First vintage 1967.
Ruby red with deep intensity and hue. Fruity, fine and elegant aromas dominated by wild berries, along with array of spicy notes. Fruity on the palate with good tannins and a lingering finish." - Winery
