Pagliarese Chianti Classico 2020
|Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico
The 2020 Chianti Classico is gorgeous and precise, with tons of old-world charm. The aromatics alone are quite open and expressive. Wild cherry, dried herbs, earthiness, menthol, tobacco and incense lend quite a bit of nuance. This mid-weight Chianti Classico is the archetype of Castelnuovo Berardenga. The 2020 is beautifully done.
Fresh with vibrant cherry and Mediterranean herbs, the 2020 Chianti Classico Pagliarese is ripe and approachable. Medium bodied, with red berries and saline earth, it has a pleasantly angular structure and a clean finish. This is a great value wine to drink on pizza or pasta nights in the near-term.
