Banfi Chianti

Banfi Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

Chianti is produced in eight adjacent, yet distinct, zones that cover a vast part of central Tuscany. But only one, which is the oldest and original, may produce Chianti Classico. However, provenance alone is not sufficient to merit the designation Chianti Classico. The producer must strictly adhere to all DOCG rules, which cover elements of vinification (such as alcohol content, yield per acre, and blend) as well as aging and bottling.

Deliciously savory, with notes of tar, dark chocolate, olives, currants and sun-dried tomatoes. Medium-bodied with fine, almost silky tannins, accompanied by bright acidity and salty minerality. Fresh finish. Drink now or hold.

Banfi Chianti 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

This definitely shows the ripeness of the vintage with dried fruit and hints of chocolate and crushed stones. It’s full and layered with plenty going on. It’s richer and denser because of the hot 2017 vintage, but it remains quite bright and fresh. Drink or hold.

A tangy and fruity red with dried cherry, orange peel and stone character is very pretty. It’s medium-bodied, fresh and linear. Shows an energy and tightness. Drink now.
