San Giusto e Rentennano Chianti Classico 2013


A delicious Chianti from San Giusto with a beautiful perfume of violets and cherries. The palate is very textured and generous but this will be best from 2019 onwards. Wonderful to lay down and enjoy for several years. 

Jancis Robinson gives this 17/20:

Cask sample. Just mid crimson. Subdued fine and a little salty on the nose. Displays an almost feather-light mouthfeel, yet the palate is perfectly balanced. For now.

Vinous gives this 92/100:

A wine of extraordinary elegance, the 2013 Chianti Classico will give readers a good look at what is in store for the best wines of the year. Translucent and weightless in the glass, the 2013 exudes finesse. Sweet red cherry, hard candy, tobacco, mint, crushed flowers and new leather are some of the nuances that grace the exquisite finish. Readers should not miss this exceptional Chianti Classico from San Giusto a Rentennano. The 2013 will be even better in a few years, once the tannins soften a touch.
