Le Corti Chianti Classico 2012

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Intense ruby red in color, the wine has a brilliant and silky profile, almost thirst-quenching with its traces of raspberry, violet, lavender, and forest roses. The lightly spicy nose is inviting, an anticipation of a lively flavor and texture with a genteel note of rhubarb, its precise tannins marked by the sensation of just-harvested crunchy, red plums, and a finish that pushes through a dynamic progression of savoriness. Food pairings: Ideal with roast pork, mixed boiled meats, wild fowl, grilled white meat, and medium-aged cheeses.

Wine EnthusiastBlack-skinned berry, menthol, aromatic herb and dark spice are some of the aromas you'll find on this generous red. The firm palate shows juicy black cherry, fleshy plum, clove, sage and black pepper. It's sleek and balanced, with polished tannins.

Wine AdvocateFrom the San Casciano Val di Pesa area, the 2012 Chianti Classico le Corti is a simple and streamlined expression that delivers loads of Sangiovese flavor. There is a warm-earthy quality to the bouquet that is enhanced by dark cherry fruit and black plum. The mouthfeel convinces, thanks to the silky and long nature of its tannins.
