The 2021 vintage began with a rather hot March which was followed by a sharp drop in temperature at the beginning of April. Fortunately, this did not cause much damage to the buds. April and May were characterised by lower than average temperatures and plenty of rain. Summer was very hot and there was very little rainfall. From mid-August temperatures became milder with little rain continuing. The harvest began slightly earlier than usual.

Bright ruby red in colour with purple undertones. Amazing aroma of spring flowers, violet, petal, sweet red fruits, liquorice, cedar, dry forest floor, spice. Creamy, elegant, fantastic length and balance. A total winner!

90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot. Bright young garnet; aromas of morel cherry, strawberry preserves and red poppy. Medium-full with very good concentration. Very good acidity and persistence, notable complexity and rich, well-balanced tannins. This is still quite young and is tightly wrapped; wait one or two years, with peak in 5-8 years, although it may drink well for another year or two.

The 2019 Chianti Classico is an attractive, mid-weight wine. Silky and beautifully perfumed, this mid-weight Chianti Classico is a terrific example of the lithe style that is so typical of Radda. Crushed flowers, mint, sweet red berries and tobacco linger.

Sangiovese verace nelle note radiose e pulitissime di ciliegie, fiori di limone, buccia di arancio, cedro e cannella. Corpo medio, tannini maturi , estrazione davvero soffice dei componenti polifenolici nella matrice ed un finale di incredibile bevibilità. Bevi ora.

Juicy cherry, strawberry and currant fruit abounds, along with a savory side sporting thyme, juniper and earth notes. It finishes with dusty tannins. Drink now through 2025. 14,000 cases made, 10,000 cases imported. — BS

History of wine

The oldest Italian Wine appellation.
The first official document citing the Chianti wine is dated 1398. But it’s only in 1716 that the Granduke of Florence Cosimo III de’ Medici officialy sets the boundaries of the Chianti region where Chianti Classico wine is now produced (but not Chianti wine). Since 2007 Chianti Classico is made with up to 100% of Sangiovese and no more than 20% of other authorized red berry varieties of wich none should exceed 15% alone.
