Villa a Sesta Chianti Classico Il Palei 2015
A chunky, broad-shouldered red, with plum, cherry, earth, iron and tobacco flavors allied to a dense block of tannins. Finishes dry and chewy. Best from 2023 through 2040.
There is a streamlined feel to the 2015 Chianti Classico Il Palei, a 100% expression of Sangiovese that was aged for an extra two years to give the grape more time to evolve. We get crushed stone and other mineral notes along with licorice and ripe cherry fruit. The tannins are a little hard, but there is nice freshness too.
