2013 Rocca di Montegrossi Chianti Classico
A wine with plenty of dried cherry and citrus fruit aromas and flavors. Medium body, slightly chewy tannins and a fresh finish. How Chianti Classico should be. Drink or hold.
The 2013 Chianti Classico is dark, sensual and beautifully layered in the glass. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, mint and cinnamon are some of the many notes that flesh out in a textured, inviting Chianti Classico endowed with notable depth and personality. In 2013, Rocca di Montegrossi's Chianti Classico is especially dark and powerful. (AG)
Wine & Spirits
The stony soils of this Gaiole estate yielded a firm Chianti Classico in 2013, with flavors of black cherry and plum accented by tobacco and dried herbs. Fine, ferrous tannins give a mineral impression, while bright acidity gives the wine a juicy and open character. Pair its dark fruit flavors and herbal notes with kale and black trumpet mushroom rigatoni.
A mix of cherry, leather and wild herb notes marks this smooth red. The tannins are well-integrated, allowing the flavors to linger nicely on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 4,500 cases made. (Web Only-2015) (BS)
