Wine

Chianti Classico Don Tommaso, Principe Corsini (Magnum), 150cl

£70.90

In an archetypal “Chiantishire” countryside rises a Renaissance villa that is the home of the Principe Duccio Corsini (the medieval villa has been in the family since at least the 14th century), a cheroot-chewing connoisseur of Chianti and also a gardening expert (he holds a festival devoted to this passion each year). In contrast to the medieval origins of his family home, his world famous winemaker Carlo Ferrini helps him craft very modern wines that display richness, depth of colour and fruit and noteworthy complexity without being over the top, but that are far removed from thin, anemic Chiantis of decades past.

The wine ages 70% in new barriques and 30% in used barriques for 15 months, 8 months in bottle. Very intense ruby, almost like cranberry juice. Elegant nose of incense, bay leaves, black pepper and sandalwood as well as a basket of black cherries and wild blackberry. Mouth filled with fruity notes, roasted coffee and vanilla that stay in the background with the amarena and blackcurrant on the main stage. Beautiful body, soft and rich tannins, just sweet with the final references back to the fruit mixed with hot spices, cardamom and incense.
