Chianti Classico Collection, the Chianti Classico 2017 and 2016 at the glass tasting

The 2017 vintage, a complex one from the climatic point of view, offers warm and fruity scents. Another step for 2016, with more defined wines

Warm, fruity aromas, with a sweet, structured sip, but almost always restrained by some rough tannins. Wines not without pleasantness, therefore, but less inclined to the challenge of time. Here, in brief, is the description, according to WineNews, of the Chianti Classico vintage 2017 close to be released, which comes out of the 2019 edition of Chianti Classico Collection, on stage at the Leopolda in Florence. A complicated vintage between the hills of Siena and Florence with the heat that has reached remarkable peaks leading to the maturation of the grapes subject to sudden breaks and accelerations, and anticipating harvesting times significantly. Among our best tastings, powerful and incisive fruit in the aromas of Chianti Classico Ama 2017 of Castello di Ama, with a rhythmic taste and a docile and warm aftertaste. Juicy and fragrant is the Chianti Classico 2017 of Castello di Monsanto, which finds its strong point in a soft and well-managed tannin. Territorial and with a strong character is the Chianti Classico 2017 of Castello di Volpaia. The Chianti Classico 2017 of Villa del Cigliano is fragrant and well-balanced overall. Flowers and fruit in the aromas of Chianti Classico 2017 by Dievole, with a decisive and convincing taste progression.
Perhaps the most significant 2017 comes from the Lamole sub-area and is the Chianti Classico 2017 of the same name produced by I Fabbri, a wine with small scents of red fruits that cross hints of flint and pomegranate. The taste is straight and incisive with nervous and tasty tannins. The Chianti Classico Péppoli 2017 di Antinori is robust and well made, with clean scents and a pleasantly sweet taste. Stony and involving aromas for the Chianti Classico Vaggiolata 2017 of Monterotondo.
Another step, evidently, is the tasting of the Chianti Classico 2016 that are about to be released on the market, because they are kept a year longer in refinement, obtained from a particularly successful vintage for the denomination and capable of expressing wines with a defined stylistic trait, with a well-expressed territory in the aromatic fragrance and in the savory taste, a sort of exaltation of the varietal characteristics of the Sangiovese of Tuscany.
The Chianti Classico Baruffo 2016 of Cantalici is fragrant and lively, with remarkable scents. The Chianti Classico 2016 of the Monterinaldi Castle is savory with great contrast, personality, and territorial coherence. Fontodi’s Chianti Classico 2016 is juicy and full, while La Montanina’s Chianti Classico 2016 stands out for its incisive and tasty palate. A memorable version of the “base” of Poggerino, the winery from Radda unveils a Chianti Classico 2016, very convincing for its aromas and juicy full aftertaste. More intensive and slightly twisted is the Chianti Classico 2016 of Val delle Corti, in the process of reaching its best maturity. The Chianti Classico 2016 of Vecchie Terre di Montefili is definitely involving, with a Burgundian charm, while it is still a Chianti.
