AGOSTINO PETRI RISERVA CHIANTI CLASSICO 2018 47th Anniversary, sustainable, DOCG
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer CASTELLO VICCHIOMAGGI
The 2018 vintages was excellent and this one with its fairly deep intense purple colour is a winner. Attractive, gently spicy, perfumed, warm ripe plum nose with some minerally, sandalwood notes. Dry, medium bodied, quite well structured, somewhat spicy, intense, very bright, ripe, plum-cherry-raspberry flavours with a lingering, gently complex, bright, fresh, slightly sandalwood-tinged finish. Quite ready-to-drink but will keep. This blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon has a hefty 14.5% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L.040 on the back label. The best yet.
