Chianti Classico 'La Misse di Candialle'

2018
Italy
Tuscany

94% Sangiovese, 3% Malvasia Nera, 3% Canaiolo. Co-harvested/co-fermented in unlined concrete with macerations lasting a month.  Aged in unlined concrete vats.  This is Candialle's Chianti Classico 'annata,'  though its release date could easily classify it as a Riserva.

"Intensely flavored, featuring cherry, currant, iron, tobacco and thyme aromas and flavors, this is tightly wound and feels like it will unfold slowly over the next decade or so. Fine length. Best from 2023 through 2035. 733 cases made, 200 cases imported."
