Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Ipsus Il Caggio 2016

Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Ipsus Il Caggio 2016

This second vintage displays the classic aromas of the Sangiovese that I like so much in the Brunellos. Vibrant red cherries, crunchy small berries, tension, soft spices, length, and freshness. Lean aromas instead of opulent and concentrated. Clearly the winemaking team had seen the benefit of using less new oak for ageing, yet the tannins are present and the wine is beautifully structured. Such a vintage was asking for a subtle hand. It will benefit from decanting. The potential of a juicy and vibrant Sangiovese wine shows its frame in the background. A stealth vintage.
