It's only wine but I like it

A superb CC from Castello di Ami. Pure Sangiovese fruit (a wee bit of Merlot in the blend), perfect ripeness, with racy red fruit, wonderful complexity dense structure and a long finish. No interference from oak. As so often is the case, the annata is a better representation of Chianti Classico than the more heavily oaked (and more expensive) Riservas and Gran Seleziones. Lovely wine, drinking now, will hold another 5 years. Tasted June 2021.
