Podere La Cappella Chianti Classico 2021


2021 is already being spoken about as one of the great vintages for Chianti and it might be early days but there seems little to suggest the contrary. This is a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, that spent a year in barriques with two-three years of age. A vibrant magenta hue, this is spicy, earthy and exhibiting animal skin notes, blueberries, tobacco leaves, raspberries, chocolate and aniseed. As appealing as the aromas are, the wine really opens up on the palate. Bright acidity and freshness with cherry skin tannins. Love this and it just kept improving in the glass. Any time over the next decade.
