Vignamaggio Chianti Classico Terre di Prenzano 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
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.
