2017 Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico

SKU #1444773 90 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Despite overall high altitudes at Volpaia, some of the lower lying vineyards were damaged by the late April frost. Along with the drought conditions, this resulted in a reduction of 30-35% of the estate's average production. Up front raspberry notes are joined by a touch of mint which adds intrigue. This gains some definition as it sits in the glass and palate is juicy with a supple texture and balanced ripeness. (MM) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Mid ruby. Concentrated marasca cherry nose with minerally hints. Plenty of concentrated cherry fruit with a tangy edge, and with rich tannins matched by the concentrated fruit on the finish. (WS) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chianti Classico offers a pretty succession of forest fruit aromas, cassis and dried raspberry with spice, tar and light shades of smoke on the close. This is an easy, light to medium-weight wine to pair with fried chicken wings. The blend is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot. (ML) Inner quote mark (9/2019)
