Tasting Notes

It is a brilliant garnet ruby wine, that shows its statuesque elegance already from the aromatic profile. Like a sculpture molded from a precious marble, it combines precision and power, with a nearly tangible three-dimensionality in its tense richness on the palate. Notes of lavender and leather, graphite hints, plum and cherry, touches of tamarind and walnut that come back in the fine texture of the tannins and in the progressive crescendo with a spicy touch. The involving and complex dynamic leads to a long and structured finish, with an aristocratic balsamic note.

History of Don Tommaso Chianti Classico 2014

2014 was a difficult year in most of Italy. It was defined as complicated, with uncertain climatic patterns, due to a number of issues that cannot in any way be resolved by humans. We managed anyway to work splendidly with the grapes as they arrived, producing wine of great quality, as always. The Sangiovese grape is known for expressing its personality with tact and elegance, even in difficult situations such as this.
