Blackberries and black cherries with some fresh flowers on the nose, following through to a medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Succulent at the end. Drink now.

The 2020 Chianti Classico Bastioni dei Collazzi is a soft, fruity wine to drink now and over the next few years, while the red cherry/plum fruit remains vibrant. 2022 – 2026

The 2020 Chianti Classico- Bastioni dei Collazzi is crafted from a cépages of eighty percent sangiovese, eighteen percent merlot and two percent malvasia nera. The wine comes in at 13.5 percent alcohol in this vintage and delivers a refined bouquet of red and black cherries, gamebird, a touch of nutskin, a fine base of soil, woodsmoke, sweet Tuscan herb tones and cedary oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full bodied and complex, with a very good core of fruit, fine soil signature, ripe tannins and a long, well balanced and gently new oaky finish. Classy Chianti! 2022 – 2035+
