2021 Antinori Peppoli Chianti Classico
Antinori’s Peppoli was first made in 1985 and year in year out proves to be a reliable, great value Chianti Classico. Produced from predominately Sangiovese grapes, the wine was aged for approximately 9 months in large Slavonian oak casks with a small parcel in stainless steel tanks to preserve the freshness of fruit.
Deep dark red black tinged colour with a red to dark red hue. Delightful red currant and red liquorice aromas stream out of the glass complimented by hints of vanillin cedar, earth, dried herbs and spice. Elegant and mid weighted the palate is decorated with savoury red currant and red cherry fruits which possess a fresh, energetic underbelly. Infusions of fresh herbs, dusty earth, traces of tobacco and spicy cedar lie on the back half. Fine, slightly dryish tannins with a vibrant red fruited finish.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
