We expected it and we were not disappointed, this year’s edition was stratospheric!
Thanks to all of you who came to greet us, to discover and get infused with the energy and the spirit of the Chianti Classico.
Friends, producers, journalists, operators of the sector and the eno-curioous, thank you!
We would like to thank Intravino, Wine News, Cronache di Gusto, and Tony Wood Italian Wine for their reviews and points.
“Chianti Classico Riserva 2016. Deep ruby red in colour. Full bodied. Dark cherry. Liquorice. Precise and powerful. Long finish. Since my last tasting in the Summer, this wine has relaxed in bottle and is revealing more of its complexity. 94+ points”
“A special estate worthy of singular attention is Vecchie Terre di Montefili.”
“Chianti Classic DOCG 2016. Noble, allows itself a little at a time, but finally unleashes its true soul from Chianti Classico with lively acidity, fine tannins and excellent drinkability.”
“A few samples from the Riserva of the last few years delighted us… [including] the 2015 Riserva of Vecchie Terre di Montefili”
“…the Chianti Classico 2016 of Vecchie Terre di Montefili was fascinating, capable of Burgundian suggestions, while remaining deeply Chianti style”
Sangiovese is our heart and soul, and it fills us with joy to share this wonder-grape at Stazione Leopolda, filled to the rafters with Chianti lovers.
Cheers to a truly special event!
