"Radda in Chianti. 95% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo.
Healthy mid ruby. Subtle savoury and minerally fruit nose that is still quite closed. Succulent red-fruit palate with long, powdery tannins. Poised and concentrated at the same time. 17.5/20 points. (WS)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
Winery: This wine represents both the specific Radda terroir and the basic principle leading our commit-ment as winegrowers: sustainable development. It is made exclusively from Sangiovese (95%) and Canaiolo (5%) grapes. Chianti Classico Val delle Corti encapsulates the principal features of a “classic” Chianti Classico, in the best sense of the term: fresh, harmonious fruit on the nose – black cherries, wild berries, violets and juniper – bright ruby red colour, good concentrated texture, lovely acidity and, above all, an elegant and extremely delicious flavour. Chianti-grown Sangiovese grapes at their best. The years of bottle-ageing mature the wine further.
A swinging year from a climatic point of view - from the winter drought we went to late frosts in April and to the big rains in June. 2016 produced a very 'raddese' wine. Intense and vibrant, almost wild, this is a wine that best expresses kindness and depth, frankness and freshness, typical of our Sangiovese. It will age very well.
