Terre di Prenzano is a single-vineyard, traditionally-made, all Sangiovese Chianti Classico from Vignamaggio. Organically farmed. It is a gorgeous wine and an even better value. It offers tart red cheery notes typical of Sangiovese, with a slight floral note. Medium-bodied and dry, with high acidity that makes it the perfect accompaniment to cold cut appetizers, pasta dishes, red meats and aged cheese. Terre di Prenzano is Vignamaggio's Chianti Classico 'Annata', that is at the base of the Chianti Classico pyramid of quality, requiring a minimum of 12 months of wood ageing.

The 2017 Chianti Classico Terre di Prenzano is a very pretty wine to drink over the near and medium-term. Crushed red berry, mint, spice, orange peel and cedar give this mid-weight, engaging Chianti Classico a good deal of complexity. Readers should expect a fairly light style.

Tilled earth, blue flower and new leather aromas lead the way. The linear palate suggests unripe cherry, orange rind and coffee bean alongside drying tannins that leave a lean, assertive finish.

A core of cherry fruit anchors this fluid red, whose bright acidity and lightly chewy tannins lend structure. Earth and tobacco notes linger. Drink now. 8,333 cases made, 2,500 cases imported.
