After decades of exploring Pacific island jungles in places like Borneo and New Guinea, Odoardo Beccari returned to his native Tuscany in the 1870s to make wine. His great-grandchildren run the winery to this day, honoring their family heritage by crafting beautiful Chianti. The 2013 Chianti Classico comes from a relatively cool, high elevation vineyard that produces ethereal, delicate Sangiovese with an intricately filigreed bouquet - reminiscent of Pinot Noir. Notes of wild cherry, autumn leaves, and cinnamon will remind of what you love about Chianti!

Luminous and fresh, this opens with aromas of red berry, violet, chopped herb and a whiff of baking spice. The vibrant, linear palate offers red cherry, strawberry, white pepper and star anise alongside racy acidity and polished tannins. Enjoy through 2018.

Cherry and blackberry flavors are at the core of this rich red. The backbone is comprised of fine tannins and vivid acidity, which drive the lingering aftertaste. Drink now through 2021.  –BS

Radda in Chianti, Tuscany
Red wine from Italy
Drinking window: 2016 - 2023
The 2013 Chianti Classico is an attractive, mid-weight wine that shows the more lifted, delicate side of Sangiovese. Crushed flowers, raspberries and sweet tobacco are all nicely delineated in the glass. Drink this feminine, mid-weight Chianti Classico over the next handful of years. Readers should expect an almost Pinot-like style.

Radda in Chianti. Mid ruby with orange tinges. Ethereal cherry and cassis nose. Cherry fruit with a green streak on the palate and a little bit astringent on the finish. Underwhelming. (WS)
