We saw a huge number of masterfully impressive Tuscan red wines this year, as you can see if you check out our Gold and Platinum winners, yet in the end the wine which stole our judges' hearts was an almost light-bodied, fine-profiled, filigree-textured, ultra-classic Chianto Classico. Don't be misled, though, by that lightness and stealthiness; the quality of its fresh fruits is outstanding, its balance is impeccable and the detail which will come with full articulacy is still a year or two away. Redcurrant and red plum purity and a veil-like subtlety of texture will beckon you on into a bottle that seems hard-wired to its vineyard origin: Tuscan earth juice. Drink 2019-2026.
