Villa Trasqua Chianti Classico 1999

Member Review by envero:

The 1999 was one of first vintages by super star oenologist Stefano Chioccioli at Villa Trasqua; originally from Greve in Chianti he was the first and currently only Italian to receive the perfect 100 points from Robert Parker Jnr. for his Redigaffi wine of Tua Rita. Stefano is convinced that the quality of the wine stems from the vineyard, with the reconstruction of the vineyards at Villa Trasqua beginning in 1998, the vines were replanted at 7,000 vines per hectare, producing an extremely concentrated must, before ageing in barriques. Great attention is given to bottle ageing - anywhere from 12 to 14 months prior to release. "besides the numerous awards received in Italy and abroad, the Chianti Classico's of Villa Trasqua are displayed in the Enoteca Italiana in Siena, an irrefutable proof of the value of this wine considering the strict selection process that wines have to pass to be admitted." www.villatrasqua.it
