Lanciola Chianti Classico Le Masse di Greve 2018
WS93: A complex, harmonious Chianti Classico, with enticing aromas of cherry, black currant, autumn woods, mushroom and leather. Fluid, firming up as tannins emerge on the lingering finish. Sangiovese and Canaiolo. Drink now through 2036.
Only a few kilometers from Florence on the undulating hills of the Colli Fiorentini zone, Lanciola farms 80 hectares of vines and olive groves. The property dates to the time of the Medici and was owned by the noble Ricci family. A second estate near Greve cultivates Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah vines. The wines are extremely well-crafted.
