Castello di Volpaia Coltassala, Chianti Classico Gran Selezione – 2016 – James Suckling – 96 Points
A more restrained Coltassala and, as far as we’re concerned, all the better for it. What a nose, from the very beginning here, with crushed violets, pressed lavender, bilberries, fresh sage and basil, licorice and crushed stones. Medium body, bright and very energetic acidity and layers of finely wrought tannins. All about the vibrant fruit and driven acidity. From organically grown grapes. Drink now or hold.
