Fattoria di Lucignano Chianti 2019
Fattoria di Lucignano is consistently one of our best Chianti values. Located in Colli Fiorentini, Lucignano is more accurately just 1 mile to the west of the Chianti Classico appellation. Here it shares a similar Mediterranean influence as the western part of Chianti Classico and benefits from the same heightened elevation. Wines from this area are known for showing the fresher, snappier side of the Sangiovese grape – as opposed to being full-bodied or bold – and expressing earthier tones than the rest of Chianti. In these two respects Lucignano is textbook. Beautiful aromas of black cherries and violets radiate from the glass, with rugged tannins and moderate acidity showing on the palate. Super classic in style and perfect with tomato sauce or aged cheeses.
