Chianti Classico Collection

Recensione di Tim Heaton dall’Anteprima del Chianti Classico 2020

2017 Fattoria di Montecchio Chianti Classico

Medium, bright brick red, with aromas, and flavors that are already quite approachable, appealing. Generous red fruits, fresh acids, firm, fine tannins. This is a winner, but should see an hour of air if consuming any time soon. Drink 2022-2033. recommended+, with upside noted. Really solid for the vintage.

2016 Fattoria di Montecchio Chianti Classico Riserva

Round, a touch modern in the middle, though I think this oak will integrate. Needs some more tannic frame to better support the acids/fruits. Ok today, may well improve in 2-4 years. Good/Good+. I have another bottle that I will open ~ 1 yr post-release as I think this will have moved in the proper direction. recommended

2016 Fattoria di Montecchio Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Pasquino

Red berries, some spice, cream. Insufficient acidity to keep for a while, so best to enjoy now thru 2027. Some additional complexity may develop; tannins are round, sweet. Med. finish. recommended
