Vintage Pruneto Chianti Classico 2003
This is pure Sangiovese Chianti from well-loved vines planted from 1975 to 1999 on high elevation, organic sandstone soils. Quietly farmed, away in the hills of Tuscany this wine transports you to everything amazing about the region. This is some of the oldest wine Pruneto has left in the cellar and at nearly two decades old it is mature and ready to enjoy. Note, we only received 5 cases of this wine in total, it is in very short supply.
Compared to the current release of 2016, now the wine is mature its flavours and texture are developed. The colour in the glass is now much lighter and a bruised amber-orange colour at the rim. The palate is dominated by complex, layered tertiary flavours of prune, tobacco, leathery earth, tar, forest floor and autumn leaves. Beautiful, mature Chianti! Grazie, Pruneto!
Enjoy with the best foods of Italy.. Veal Parmesan, lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, blue cheese and rich stews.
