Ricasoli Chianti Classico Colledila Gran Selezione 2020

Product description

Colledila stands out for its complex structure and great, modern elegance. A pure Sangiovese that manages to reveal all the magnificent qualities of this grape that are further exalted by the small dimensions of the vineyard whose name it bears. Ruby red color. Intense and elegant nose with ripe plum, wood notes and caramel. Round, silky and elegant in the mouth with velvety tannins, which, together with a crisp acidity, gives a wrapped softening mouthfeel.

97 Points - James Suckling

Very perfumed with hibiscus flower, citrus and fresh cherry aromas that follow through to a medium body with layers of fruit and very fine tannins that go on and on. Totally integrated. A joy to taste and drink but will improve beautifully in the bottle. All about harmony.

Of these releases from 2020, I feel that the Barone Ricasoli 2020 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colledila is the most sensitive to the warm growing season. You sense more fruit ripeness in this wine with savory spice, leather and toasted espresso bean. There is plenty of plum and purple fruit that is framed by crushed stone and campfire ash. 

93 Points - Wine Spectator

Like a laser beam in profile, this red evokes cherry, currant, mineral, wild herb and sweet spice aromas and flavors. The lingering, incisive finish leaves a dusting of fine tannins. Needs time. 

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast

The nose has highlights of rich, ripe fruit, but with a savory balance provided by balsamic, mushrooms and natural notes of wood and stone. On the palate, sweet fruit continues and is emphasized by vanilla undertones, with a latent earthiness maintaining the woodsy balance.
