Principe Corsini le Corti Chianti Classico 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red in color, the wine has a brilliant and silky profile, almost thirst-quenching with its traces of raspberry, violet, lavender, and forest roses. The lightly spicy nose is inviting, an anticipation of a lively flavor and texture with a genteel note of rhubarb, its precise tannins marked by the sensation of just-harvested crunchy, red plums, and a finish that pushes through a dynamic progression of savoriness. Food pairings: Ideal with roast pork, mixed boiled meats, wild fowl, grilled white meat, and medium-aged cheeses.

At the dawn of the 15th century, the banking crisis, which had been caused by the insolvency of Edward III, forced Matteo Corsini to rebuild his position in England thus returning to Tuscany where he invested in land.

Savory cured meat and brown sugar aromas with concentrated black cherry and blackberry fruit on the nose. Full bodied on the palate with a pleasant floral note floating on top of chocolate cherry, strawberry and fresh berry fruit notes, a chewy tannic structure and a finish of blueberry pie filling. 91 pts
