#20 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2021

Wine Spectator, 93 Points 

"Though ripe and lush, this is also dense, with pointed tannins giving a physical sensation and lifting the cherry, strawberry and floral flavors. Finds a nice youthful equilibrium in the end, where mouthwatering acidity roams." 

Wine Enthusiast, 92 Points 

"Fresh and fragrant, this has vinous aromas of red berry, blue flower and dark culinary spice. The bright savory palate doles out crushed raspberry, red cherry and baking spice alongside vibrant acidity and taut polished tannins." 

James Suckling, 91 Points 

"A fresh, delicate Chianti Classico showing lots of typical character and brightness with orange-peel and bark undertones. Light to medium body, light tannins and a delicious, crisp finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now." 

Vinous, 91 Points 

"The 2018 Chianti Classico is a very pretty, enticing wine. Crushed flowers, sweet red cherry, pipe tobacco, cedar and mint all grace this exquisite, ethereal Chianti Classico from Coltibuono. All the elements simply fall into place effortlessly. Silky tannins round things out in style. This is such a beguiling Chianti Classico." 

Decanter, 91 Points 

"Coltibuono’s vineyards are in southern Gaiole, in an area called the Monti. Winemaker and owner Roberto Stucchi reports that here August 2018 saw more rainfall than the infamously wet 2014 vintage - the warm, dry winds of September helped turn the tide. Pale ruby in hue but vibrantly scented, this displays a floral perfume of rose, violet and yellow broom, mingling with raspberry. Very appetising and fresh, it has an overall lightness of structure, with fine, elegant, powdery tannins and acidity which is expansive rather than piercing. Despite a feeling of weightlessness, it is a lovely, persistent wine." 

Alcohol: 13.5%
