Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico 2019
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Badia a Coltibuono|
Ripe wild berry, blue flower and dark spice aromas form the nose along with whiffs of new leather. Tangy and easy drinking, the savory palate offers mature Marasca cherry and licorice alongside lithe tannins. Drink through 2024.
The 2019 Chianti Classico is gorgeous. Bright, floral and punchy, the 2019 is super-expressive right out of the gate. Sweet red berry fruit, flowers, dried herbs and spice all open in the glass, but it is the purity and energy here that impress most. I would prefer to drink the 2019 sooner rather than later, as there is a slight vegetal note that are likely to become more prominent in time.
