Castello dei Rampolla Chianti Classico 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Castello dei Rampolla|
The 2017 Chianti Classico is a tad too ripe for my tastes. You taste the heat of the vintage in those aromas of blackberry preserves and strawberry jam. Background notes of apricot and candied orange peel add to that characteristic hot vintage bouquet. I would suggest a near-term drinking window as a result.
