It is a Chianti Classico 2016 to be crowned by Wine Spectator, in third place in the Top 100, the annual ranking of the best wines in the world prepared by one of the most important editorial offices overseas.
For the denomination it is an encore: last year the Chianti Classico Riserva 2015 of Castello di Volpaia had achieved the same result.
This time the Chianti Classico of the Fattoria San Giusto in Rentennano was awarded, for the happy and symbolic 2016 vintage: the 300th harvest from that 24 September 1716 in which Cosimo III de ‘Medici delimited the production area of today’s Chianti Classico DOCG with farsightedness .
This by Wine Spectator is a recognition that comes at the end of a year full of successes for the Black Rooster, recognized by Italian and international critics as one of the best wines of the Bel Paese, and able to pleasantly surprise those who will have the patience to wait for the evolution in the bottle in the coming years.
And, counting the hand, the Chianti Classico can well be said therefore the most rewarded denomination of the Tuscan panorama, with an even richer international medal collection.
