89pointsColombaio di Cencio 2017 Monticello (Chianti Classico)

Aromas of red berry, tilled soil, violet and dark spice mingle with a hint of underbrush. On the lithe, linear palate, a mineral note evoking rusted iron accents mature wild cherry and star anise while dusty tannins provide support. Acquired in 2018 by Fontanafredda, which has invested in the vineyards and the cellars, this is an estate to watch. Kerin O’Keefe
