I Fabbri, Chiant Classico Riserva, 2015

A selection of the best bunches from the first days of harvest, 95% Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo aged in French oak. "This opens gradually to reveal a heady tangle of moist soil, violets and rosehip. Ripe but vibrant cherry and raspberry chime in on the palate. It's limpid with a lightness of being though fine, mouthcoating tannins build toward the finish. This has plenty of energy and persistency. 93/100", Decanter.com, February 2019. So expansive, complex - red fruit with fruitcake aromatics - and long. Now-2026

Organic estate I Fabbri in Greve, run by 11th generation owner Susanna Grassi, is one of the highest in Chianti Classico: 630m. of altitude brings freshness and an old-fashioned moderate alcohol to the wines here.

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
