2021 Querceto di Castellina L'Aura Chianti Classico

Tuscany | Sangiovese
"Attractive nose of licorice, dried cherries, balsamic, walnuts and sweet basil. Creamy and savory on the palate with a medium body and well-integrated tannins. Delicious now."

"Named after the matriarch of the estate, Laura Di Battista, the 2021 Chianti Classico L'Aura is attractive and expressive on opening. Composed entirely of Sangiovese raised in French oak for 12 months, it is floral with a perfume of ripe red cherry, fresh rose petal, and well-integrated oak spices of vanilla and cinnamon. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and an angular edge of acidity, the palate is quaffable and forward with orange citrus, dusty earth, and dried herbs."

"Flinty minerality contrasts with mushrooms and balsamic vinegar on the nose before black cherries and fennel come through. The palate turns all cherriesBing and black, fresh and dried—with grainy tannins and enough acidity for balance."
