Ricasoli Chianti Classico Gran Selezione “Colledila'” 2017 DOCG

From: $85.99

 

97 James Suckling

The purity of fruit here is stunning with blackberry, blueberry and orange-peel aromas and flavours. Medium-bodied with ultra-fine tannins.

Racy and focused with precision and polish that is very impressive for the vintage. Drinkable now, but better after 2022
