What the Critics say
The 2019 Chianti Classico Dino is bright, fresh and vibrant. Crushed flowers, spice, sage and red berry fruit give this bold, pungent 100% Sangiovese tons of aromatic and flavor intensity. The 2019 is deep and so expressive, but also light on its feet, with a feeling of transparency that is beguiling. The Dino was fermented and aged in amphora, where it spent 15 months prior to being bottled. Drink: 2022-2034.
What began as an experimental wine in 2008 as a homage to winemaker Giovani Manetti's late father, Dino Chianti has become one of the most sought after wines in the range. Dino is fermented aged 15 months solely in terra cotta amphora to allow a truly pure expression of Tuscan sangiovese. This wine is bottled without an added sulphites.
