Istine Chianti Classico Vigna Istine 2019

In stock
Product Details

The Istine vineyard is 5 ha in Radda at an altitude of 500 metres and a northwest orientation. The soil here is very rocky, mainly alberese with also marl limestone, galestro and some quartz here and there. A very cool vineyard, therefore, and Angela harvests these up to 3 weeks after the others. The vines here are traditionally pruned in "cordone speronate", but Angela now converts them to "simple Guyot" to better control yields. The wine ferments in stainless steel cuves at a maximum temperature of 30°C with regular remontages (pumping over). The skin soaking lasts up to 45 days! Afterwards, the wine goes into 10hl to 40 hl Austrian oak barrels from Stockinger or Pauscha. Everything is put on quality here! Vigna Istine is a truly magnificent and extremely varietal, powerful and fresh Chianti Classico with a quasi-perfect balance between concentration and freshness and a wonderfully long finish. Istine is not very well known yet, but make no mistake, this is really a top domain!

Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2019 Chianti Classico Vigna Istine is stellar. A classic Radda wine, the Vigna Istine is all finesse. Deeply pitched aromatics make a strong first impression. Bright red cherry, rose petal, spice, cedar and new leather all meld together in a wine of tremendous beauty and resonance. Silky, pliant and wonderfully expressive, the Vigna Istine is a winner from Angela Fronti." 94/100
