Chianti Classico is a myth of Italian Winemaking from Tuscany! 2016 is the 300th Anniversary of the most famous Italian Wine in the World, from the ancient recipe by Barone Bettino Ricasoli (1716). Don Tommaso is the top Chianti bottling made at Le Corti, a wine made from a selection of the best grapes from the estate’s Chianti Classico vineyards. The wine ages 70% in new barriques and 30% in used barriques for 15 months, 8 months in bottle. Its modern and international style remains solidly anchored to the territory. Fruity, deep, and complex, it is a soft, intense, and big wine to drink.
Chianti Classico “Don Tommaso” by Principe Corsini has very intense ruby colour, almost like cranberry juice. Elegant nose of incense, bay leaves, black pepper and sandalwood as well as a basket of black cherries and wild blackberry. Mouth filled with fruity notes, roasted coffee and vanilla that stay in the background with the amarena and blackcurrant on the main stage. Beautiful body, soft and rich tannins, just sweet with the final references back to the fruit mixed with hot spices, cardamom and incense.
Best to be enjoyed with
The best way to pair Chianti Classico “Don Tommaso” by Principe Corsini is with hare juniper, stewed duck, trippa Florentine, filet of beef with cherries, seasoned cheeses.
The Winery: Principe Corsini
In an archetypal “Chiantishire” countryside rises a Renaissance villa that is the home of the Principe Duccio Corsini, a cheroot-chewing connoisseur of Chianti and also a gardening expert. In contrast to the medieval origins of his family home, his world famous winemaker Carlo Ferrini helps him craft very modern wines. They display richness, depth of colour and fruit and noteworthy complexity.
