Vignamaggio Chianti Classico Riserva Gherardino 2017
The Vignamaggio Gherardino Chianti Classico Riserva is dedicated to the noble Gherardini family, founders of the picture-perfect Vignamaggio estate back in the 14th Century. This is an intense and enveloping Chianti, ruby red in colour with shades of garnet. Fruity nose of sour cherries, blackberries and ripe cherries, tobacco and spices. On the palate, forest fruits with soft and bright tannins and a liquorice finish. The 10% Merlot added to the blend provides a supple silkiness and elegant tannins, paired down by mineral freshness.
