Renzo Marinai Chianti Classico 2017 is a very well balanced expression of Sangiovese (with the addition of 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) showing a large component of ripe fruit balanced by structure and freshness. The fruity heart of the wine bouquet is pleasantly surrounded by notes of spices, leather and delicate tobacco. It is a fantastic, informal and accessible wine.
Renzo Marinai is a small company of about 6 hectares of vineyards located in one of the most renowned places of the Chianti Classico appellation: the Conca d’Oro di Panzano in Chianti. The vineyards are located in San Martino a Cecione just outside the village of Panzano at about 400 m asl. Alongside the Sangiovese there is always a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon which, especially in difficult years, brings a contribution of tannin and structure.
The style of the Chianti Classico produced by Renzo Marinai is well marked: substance and body, with an excellent concentration of ripe fruit, spices and leather. Muscular wines that require an accompaniment of the same content to maintain balance.
