Villa Cerna Primocolle Chianti Classico 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
The rock star of the Villa Cerna lineup... this is an every day wine for people that have been or want to go to Italy. Take 2 bottles... You'll open it as you prepare dinner and need a second bottle by the time you're seated. A blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Colorino.
The 2019 Chianti Classico Primocolle is lifted with ripe red cherry, iron-rich earth, and fresh leather. Medium-bodied, with some meaty iron minerality on the palate, it has fine tannins and a broad richness. The palate is dry and savory, with tangerine, turned soil, and fresh salinity. This lovely red is drinking beautifully now and will continue to drink well over the next 6-8 years.
More on the savory side, this red reveals leafy, underbrush notes of eucalyptus, sage and menthol, along with cherry and licorice flavors. Sangiovese and Colorino. Drink now through 2025. 8,000 cases made, 4,500 cases imported.
