2017 Chianti Classico, yet another stunning vintage!

A Pair of 95 Point Chianti's!!

2017 Felsina Chianti Classico Berardenga...$23.99
A very fresh 2017 with plenty of tight and linear tannins that give the wine energy and drive. Medium to full body. Racy finish. This is impressive. Fantastic texture and complexity on the palate with purple fruit and wet earth.
Rated 95/100 James Suckling

2017 Castello di Ama Chianti Classico...$32.99
Rose, mature red berry and wild herb aromas mingle with a balsamic whiff of eucalyptus. The delicious, polished palate boasts a restrained elegance, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, star anise and white pepper alongside refined tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced and lends just enough tension.
Rated 95/100 The Wine Enthusiast
