2018 Tenuta di Nozzole Villa Nozzole Chianti Classico
The Villa Nozzole has a 700-year history of wine growing and hospitality – and if there is anything you ever need to know about Italians, it’s that they take their hospitality very seriously. So, if you’re going to have a luxury villa 15 minutes from Florence that is going to stand the test of time and Yelp ratings, you’re going to need to make some darn good Chianti Classico. And this is it:
Chianti’s classic mixture of cherry red fruit, dried roses, mineral spices and an undercurrent of truffle all unfurl in this wine’s sensual aromas. The palate is tied together and perfectly poised in its acidity, tannic backbone and fruit character. The profoundness and intensity of the flavors seem virtually endless. The finish is seamless and long, elegant and transporting you right to the Tuscan countryside.
The Folonari family purchased the villa in 1971 and set about creating a modern Chianti estate for wine making, one that respects the history of the vineyard but also produces wines that are fresh, modern and sophisticated. With this particular wine they want it open and expressive right off the cork pull, fruit-forward in nature, but also balanced and truly Tuscan. So hey, sit back, order pizza, pop a bottle of this, and daydream of their majestic Tuscan estate. It’ll warm your heart and your palate!
“A fresh, lively red with plums, tile and hints of chocolate. Medium to full body, round tannins and a fruity finish.” – James Suckling
