    Chianti Classico DOCG 2018 (BIO)

    Lively ruby with bright violet reflections, in the nose rich fruity aromas, typical of wild berries and sour cherries. On the palate fresh, balanced and well structured, with silky tannins and spicy accents. A classic of the appellation. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Mid crimson. Savoury and a little reductive at the moment, but this is a cask sample. Gorgeous succulent sweet red fruit and gripping tannins. Very long, juicy and gripping." Jancis Robinson

    "Reoccurring rainy periods throughout the growing season made it challenging for organic producer Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi. He credits the constant winds inherent to the area of Monti in Gaiole-in-Chianti for helping keep the grapes clean and healthy through to harvest. While not immediately charming, Rocca di Montegrossi's annata demonstrates impressive concentration and tannin structure for this vintage. It is very youthful with great energy and freshness on the palate but still fairly tightly wound. I'd give it a few more months in bottle before approaching." Decanter

    "A red with blackberries, black cherries and hints of sliced dark mushrooms that follow through to a medium body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Some bark, too. Always a serious Chianti Classico." James Suckling

    "The 2018 Chianti Classico opens with a burst of sweet red berry fruit, spice and wild flowers. Exuberant and racy, the 2018 is endowed with tremendous energy and tons of personality. Time in the glass brings out the wine's inner sweetness and radiance, with a closing flourish of red flowers. This is a fabulous wine for the money. Don't miss it." Vinous
