Wine of the Month. Chianti Classico 2014 by Istine

Subtle aromas of flowers, fragrant forest fruit and a vigorous palate: the Chianti Classico 2014 by Istine is a must-try when in Tuscany. Here are our tasting notes.

Italy is a wonderful place because we can still find delicious, original, territorial wines at affordable prices. There’s no need to go far, to some unknown zone. There are even bargains in the best-known areas, such as Chianti Classico. The wine of the month takes us to Radda in Chianti, to AngelaFronti, the young founder of an estate which always offers particularly elegant, invigorating wines with a well-focused, highly readable profile.

Istine’s ambitious project, which earned it the Up-and-Coming Winery award, consists of three separate vineyards. Two are in the Radda subzone and one in Gaiole in Chianti, each with a distinct exposure, altitude and soil composition. All share organic methods and pared-down traditional cellar procedures such as aging in large oak barrels.

The Chianti Classico 2014 is simply delicious, with subtle aromas of flowers, small, fragrant forest fruit and a vigorous palate. Not only does it combine complexity and appeal in the flavor, but its aromas are accomplished, crisp and multilayered.
