Lornano Le Bandite Chianti Classico Riserva 2015 6 pack of 750mL Red Wine
Weve been importing a couple of wines from Tuscan producer Lornano for a few years now. When we saw how well Le Bandite fared in the Decanter World Wine Awards, we realised it was time for us to expand the range. This is Chianti Classico Riserva of the highest order. 100% sangiovese sourced from a vineyard at 330 metres over shale and alluvial soil. After fermentation, it sees about 20 months in French oak, which adds a cedary backdrop to the wine. This is more of a complement to the fruit rather than an overt presence thankfully, as the wine is wonderfully in balance. Youll find black cherry, plum, licorice, earthen notes and even hints of balsam in the wine. The tannins are velvety and lead into a long mineral-laden finish. Keep the hits coming, Lornano.
