An outstanding award-winning 2017 vintage Chianti Classico DOCG from the mountains of Radda

This delicious wine is crafted by the legendary Beretta family at their vineyard in Radda – the very heart of the Chianti Classico region.

Winemaking

Located at 400 meters above sea level, the production yields are very low. Vines are planted densely, which ensures the grapes reach optimum quality before hand-harvesting takes place. The wine is aged in large Slavonian oak barrels which adds the distinctive taste of vanilla, spice and smoke. Before release, the wine is further aged in the bottle for at least six months.

Tasting notes

Made in the mountains of Radda, this Chianti Classico is surprisingly fresh and elegant. It bursts with flavours of red cherry, raspberry and black plum, complemented by notes of dry fruits and herbs – dry cranberry, mint and rosemary – as well as subtle aromas of mushrooms, wet stone and leather. To complete the picture, it offers a delicate touch of oak and smooth tannins.

“A very nice example with a suave floral and smoky nose, sweet black fruit flavours, smooth tannins, lively acidity and integrated alcohol. Long, persistent finish.” – Decanter
