Canonica A Cerreto, Chianti Classico DOCG, 2015
26 Jan 2020
I was debating whether it’ll taste better with a Grassl Cru (burgundy) glass or 1855 (Bordeaux) glass, decided to give it a try with 2 glasses. Very typical Chianti style bouquet with abundance of red fruits and a tinge of smoky finishing. Palette tasted relatively hollow with the 1855 glass, but full of big and chunky fruits with the Cru glass, so I’ll use this Cru glass as it gave me maximum pleasure. Very surprising that the wine is so big and fruity which is not very common with Chianti wines. In fact, the tannins were all over the place, which implies it can be aged for another 5 years (in 2025) to reach the optimal drinking window of soft tannins and ripe fruits.
