Chianti Classico 'La Misse di Candialle'

2020
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.

"The 2020 Chianti Classico La Misse di Candialle is bright, bold and bursting with energy. Sweet red Sangiovese fruit, spice, mint, cedar and sweet pipe tobacco are all beautifully delineated in a Chianti Classico that bristles with vibrancy. The 2020 is exquisite. I would give it a year or two to soften."
