“The 2020 Chiaretto Nichesole mixes both savory and sweet, with freshly sliced peach and citrus zests giving way to smoky minerals and peppery herbs. This is noticeably ripe in style, but wonderfully balanced by bright acids, as notes of candied lime and apples yield to hints of brown spice. Energy remains high from start to finish as the Nichesole tapers off to hints of sour melon and inner florals. There is much to like about this wild and spry Chiaretto.”
The historic vineyard is located at high elevation within the heart of Chianti Classico. Mazzei could have easily just thrown the Merlot in the dirt and bottled the Sangiovese alone for a much bigger pay day. I’m certainly glad they didn’t. This is deep, dark and luscious with intense aromas of red berry and cocoa. Fresh and lively on in the mouth – and will be an excellent companion to any red sauce – yes, even pizza – pot roast, etc.
