San Giusto A Rentennano Chianti Classico 2018

$31.99

The 2018 Chianti Classico is a textbook expression from the appellation. This Sangiovese-based wine shows latitude and depth with elegant aromas of wild berry, forest floor, dried blueberry, honey, lavender and rosemary essence. There are hints of chalk or crushed limestone that recall the unique soils of the Gaiole in Chianti growing region. The tannins are elegantly integrated, and the wine offers enough natural freshness to pair with a hearty pappardelle al sugo di cinghiale.


93 points James Suckling

” The purity of fruit with cherries and raspberries, as well as mineral character, is so wonderful in this Chianti Classico. Medium body. Balanced and nicely fruity with fresh, firm tannins. All here. Drink or hold.” (7/2019)

Set in the far south of the Chianti Classico zone, San Giusto a Rentennano started out as a medieval Cistercian monastery and currently owns about 40 hectares of vineyards – a small landholding compared to some of big Tuscan names and a feature that means they produce small quantities of wine.
