Babo Chianti DOCG 2014

Regular price $24.00
There are a couple of firsts here; this is the first Chianti to be bottled under screwcap (yey!), it's Justin's freshman effort from this vineyard (in the Vinci zone near Empoli, west of Florence) and it's one of the first to bottled in a Burgundy-shaped bottle as opposed to the traditional 'Claret; shape. For this 'Italian Beaujolais' Justin Bubb has employed whole berry fermentation and 30% carbonic maceration, simply fermented and then raised in concrete vats for 6 months.

'Italian Beaujolas' strikes us as about right; It's wonderfully bright and aromatic, Sangiovese with notes of raspberry and red cherry, good texture and lightweight tannins, with sappy acidity and a thirst-quenching finish. Get on board!
