Chianti Superiore 2018

Fiorini is mostly Sangiovese (90%) with small amounts of Cabernet, Canaiolo and Ciliegiolo, aged in a combination of new and old barriques and tonneaux. Perfumed fruit of classic cherry and violets with berries and spice of cinnamon, cloves and pepper. The palate balances sweet and savoury notes with weight and substance, the fine grained tannins supporting a long finish.

"Tasted alongside the La Serra, which is always interesting. If you want to experience terroir, well, I reckon traditionally made Barolo and Barbaresco provide much better examples than Burgundy does, with their Pinot Noir toolkit of winemaking techniques obfuscating vineyard so often! Anyway, air-freight sample here, so likely arriving in the not too distant future, given the travails of international shipping at present, container shortages, and the like. I’ve been dipping into my 2010s of this wine of late, and gee they are looking VERY good."

"Menthol and liquorice, porcini mushroom, spice, red and black berries, subdued floral notes. It’s tight, earthy and packed with grainy ‘mineral’ tannin and chalky feel, kind of reticent as at now, but with latent power and perfume to come. Tobacco and chewy feel, on a long firm finish. A lot more grunt this vintage, though that’s no bad thing either. Wait." 96 points. Gary Walsh, The Winefront
