chianti classico DOCG 2015


 

A tough year with a hot summer, proving once again that the Radda terroir can handle climate change. A very hot, dry year like 2015 has produced a richly extracted, deep wine, yet refreshing and always fresh. Lustrous, clear ruby red colour. The nose opens with pleasing cherry fruit enriched with hints of thyme and mint. A mouth-watering palate with well-judged tannin and a sprinkling of spice and fresh, supple flavour. A wine with a generous, racy character, marked salty tang and a lingering finish
