Chioccioli Fossifoco Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG Chioccioli Altadonna Family Estate, 2015

Italy

Grape Variety

Merlot

Starting to develop some nice tertiary undergrowth characters which complement aromas of red cherries and vanilla. It has a fine dense texture and is medium bodied with bitter fruits on the finish and a juicy acidity giving length and cellaring potential. It was fermented in oak barrels where it spent a further 18 months: although the oak is evident, it is not overly dominant. This is a well-balanced, smooth wine which will continue to evolve in bottle.
