"Lively ruby red color, intense and persistent aromas, with hints of wild berry. Savory and full bodied, it highlights the exceptional persistence of the bouquet. Aged in Slavonian or French oak barrels for a period of 6 to 10 months and refined further in the bottle."
Plum, cherry, iron and underbrush flavors mingle in this light-bodied red, which firms up nicely, with dusty tannins joining the red fruit. Drink now. 79,000 cases made, 38,000 cases imported.
The 2019 Chianti Classico Famiglia Zingarelli is a hard wine to taste. It offers modest complexity, while angular contours attenuate the fruit and finish. Red berry fruit, blood orange, spice and floral notes never emerge fully, as the tannins are just overpowering.
