2018 Nittardi Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG
Intense dark red, nose of blueberry, dark cherry, ripe blackberry and garrigue with notes of exotic spices. Medium palate with elegant tannins and excellent freshness. Outstanding texture, remarkable softness with a long & persisting fi nish. Riserva 2018 is still a very compact and young wine and it will be exciting to follow the evolution of this wine for the next 20 years. It matches perfectly with dishes of the creative Tuscan cuisine. It should be served at around 17° C.
WA 92: The organic Nittardi 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva is 95% Sangiovese enhanced with just a touch of Merlot for extra softness and cherry sweetness. This vintage has lightly macerated aromas with dried plum and fruit skin that add lift or vertical intensity to the bouquet (with an aldehydic hint as well). The wine is bright and lifted with a medium-bodied finish. Production is 8,000 bottles.
JS 94: A complete and complex red with cherry, walnut, dark chocolate and some hazelnut. It’s full and tight with linear structure and intensity. Excellent length. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
