Antinori Chianti Classico Pèppoli 2009
The Peppoli 2009 is ruby red in color with aromas of ripe red fruit and well amalgamated notes of vanilla and coffee. The palate enjoys a notable support from the acidity, which maintains a pleasurable freshness and persistence of flavor along with soft and sweet tannins which guarantee excellent drinkability.
Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and Syrah
Wine & SpiritsCritical Acclaim "A sophisticated Chianti Classico with fine ripeness, this shows juicy Morello cherry flavors along with dark notes of roast coffee, mace and nutmeg. Its firm black tannins last; their fruity, wood-ear-mushroom savor suggests decanting it with a grilled steak."
Wine SpectatorA fluid and supple red, yet offers grainy tannins to support cherry, raspberry and spice flavors. On the slimmer side, yet balanced. Best from 2013 through 2019. 15,000 cases imported.
Wine EnthusiastPèppoli is a tight and fresh wine, with lively, one-dimensional fruit. It doles out forest berry, cranberry and cassis notes, which are accompanied by bright acids.
