Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer LE CALVANE
A classically-styled Chianti with a gentle modern fruity twist! It has a fairly deep red colour with a slightly spicy, gently plummy nose with some very faintly smoky, sandalwood-chestnut notes. Dry and medium bodied albeit quite well structured, the perfectly ripe, somewhat tangy, gently spicy, Damson plum flavours are followed up with a lingering, crisp, sandalwood-tinged finish. This very tasty harmonious blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo is quite ready-to-drink and great value. A real crowd-pleaser, it has 13% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L05/23 on the back label. CSPC 454934
