Radda in Chianti Rising! L’Erta di Radda
Another partner from Chianti Classico with stellar notes in this spring’s edition of Wine & Spirits is L’Erta di Radda from Radda in Chianti. Winemaker Diego Finocchi has absolutely nailed the true essence of high-altitude Radda in his pure Sangiovese wines — lively aromas, crunchy fruit, tons of freshness. To quote the team at Wine &Spirits Magazine, “it’s the kind of wine you can keep drinking and never tire of it.” Bravo !
L’Erta di Radda 2020 Chianti Classico
Rose-scented and lively, with crunchy red cherry flavors and firm, raspy tannins, this wine embodies the lifted style of the Radda UGA’s cool, high-elevation vineyards. Medium-bodied, buoyant and fresh, it’s the kind of wine you can keep drinking and never tire of it.
L’Erta di Radda 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva
Racy acidity drives flavors of red cherry and subtle spice in this medium-bodied Riserva. The wine gains energy with exposure to air, picking up hints of wet stone as the fruit tones deepen into darker cherry and cassis flavors. Perfect for tagliolini in a ragù sauce.
