Azienda Agricola Caparsa Chianto Classio Reserva Caparsino
REGION Tuscany, Italy
Blackberry- Fresh - Spicy
This is fruity, structured, elegant. A lovely example of Chianti Classico from right at the very heart of Chianti, with cherry and blackberry flavours, structure, richness and balancing freshness- there is integrated tannins and a racy acidity. The finish is warm and spicy.
Spontaneous with indigenous yeast in large lined cement tanks.
Paolo Cianferoni (with the help of his sons) is making a concerted push for top winery in Chianti Classico. Considering the form of recent vintages, I’d say you can pick out a handful or peer estates that are in Paolo’s lofty orbit, but only a handful. What you have here is certified organic high elevation Sangiovese from a small family farm that can age for two decades
