Istine “Vigna Cavarchione” Chianti Classico 2019
Istine’s wines are a beautifully pure expression of Chianti. No foreign grapes, no French oak. Just the traditional grapes and methods, and it works.
The Cavarchione vineyard was planted in 2009-2010 to a mixture of high-quality Chianti Classico clones of Sangiovese. Located in the commune of Gaiole, near the hamlet of Vertine. Cavarchione shows a bright mid-red color; aromas and flavors of red fruit, herbs, pencil shavings and game meat. Beefier than the other two crus, very balsamic, very long, very fresh, expressive and clean. 2019 is an excellent vintage, and this will really sing with a few years in bottle.
