Maretti Chianti 2019

From the team at Fourth Wave Wine comes a number made with fruit grown in the Chianti Rufina and satisfying the rules for DOCG classification. Bottled under screwcap. Winemaker is Giovani Busi. Note, bottle image is of 2018, but nought else as changed.

Maretti, Sangiovese, Chianti, 2019

The front label mentions Cabernet but I’m not so sure. Slightly soupy complexion, rustic nose of macerating cherry, ageing rose petals, brambly herb garden, red apple and a touch of rusticity coming through. Medium bodied palate with easy light red summer fruits, little rumbles of fine tannin, a little tart acidity and a clean finish. Simple on its own, but perfect with any sort of tomato based pasta sauce or salumi platter.

RRP: $24
Alc: 12.5%
Rating: 17.5/20 (90/100)
