94 points Wine Spectator “Value Pick of The Week” June 24th 2020 Edition
Colle Bereto’s history which dates back to the 11th century, transformed to new life in the 1970’s, today finds its origins in simple and authentic values of love for the family and for the territory. Located in the heart of Radda in Chianti it is a magical place that has succeeded over thirty years to fascinate the Pinzauti family who chose it as the ideal place to start their wine adventure. Only manual work and respect for nature and certified organic farming methods are used. For a good wine three things are indispensable: a good season, good soil, and someone who, with passion, manages to treat everything in an exceptional way, both at the vineyard level and in the cellar.
This rich full bodied complex Chianti Classico has an intense limpid purple color, aromas of dark ripe fruits; cherry , plum. Earthy aromas of iron, earth and leather. Harmonious dense structure and balance. A succulent long and persistent finish. Approachable now, but this should evolve well over the next few decades. Drink now through 2040. 3,500 cases made.
