Antinori "Peppoli" Chianti Classico 2010
Estate-grown Chianti Classico DOCG90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and SyrahIntense red fruit aromas with light hints of vanilla and coffee. A well-structured wine with smooth, sweet tannins of nice length with fruity flavours. This wine is made to be enjoyed fairly young, while the fruit is at its fullest expression.
I'm not a big fan of chianti, this one was okay. Sharp, cherry flavor. I guess if you like chianti it's a decent try.
Full flavoured. Medium bodied. Not heavy in tannins. Easy drinking chianti.
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Antinori "Peppoli" Chianti Classico
The wine is ruby red in color with aromas of ripe red fruit and well amalgamated notes of vanilla and coffee. The palate enjoys a notable support from the acidity, which maintains a pleasurable freshness and persistence of flavor along with soft and sweet tannins which guarantee excellent drinkability.
The vineyards are planted in a particularly favorable valley on soils rich in mineral elements, ideal for the cultivation of a Sangiovese full of vitality and fruit. The Peppoli estate, located in the heart of Chianti Classico, consists of 100 total hectares, fifty of which are planted to vines.
Dunkles Purpur; intensive Aromen von Kirschen, reifer schwarzer Frucht, etwas Schokolade und Vanille. Im Gaumen sehr geschmeidig, mit der typischen Sangiovese-Saftigkeit. Der Wein hat Biss und Schmelz zugleich. Ein Chianti classico, der die Vermählung von modernem und klassischem Winemaking sehr gut zeigt.
