Outer quote mark Volpaia is an 11th century hamlet high up in the area of Radda-in-Chianti. Owned by the Stianti family since 1966, the property includes 43 hectares of vineyards planted mainly on sandstone or macigno as it is known in Chianti Classico. The 2018 shows beautiful purity of cherry nuanced by hints of mint and tarragon. There is a sneaky fleshiness of fruit on the palate and sufficient acidity to balance. While tannins aren't massive they provide a much welcome grip dissolving slowly and cleansing the palate. Lingers subtly. (MM) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

The nose says high altitude Chianti Classico, a focused combo of cherry fruit, Tuscan herbs, and a bit of earth. On the palate however the wine takes a different turn, the edges are smoothed out and the fruit becomes plumier while hints of chocolate smooth out the palate presence giving it depth and resonance. The finish is fresh, balanced and shows an easy drinkability while the flavors beg for a bit of food, so easy to drink on its own yet a marvelous food accompaniment, try it with your favorite pasta.
