Tasting Notes

Il Maggio Chianti Classico is produced by Piemaggio. The estate is located a Le Fioraie, a hamlet on the north-western side of the Castellina in Chianti territory in the heart of historical Chianti Classico. Piemaggio is the name of the farmhouse in the centre of the estate.

The painstaking work in the vinyards, the selection of the best grapes at harvest time, together with vinification and ageing techniques result in top-quality wines of great honesty.

Now moving into prime this pours fairly pale garnet-brick. It is slim yet well balanced with complex aromas of currants, leather, rosemary and wood spice. There is a firm, slightly tart acidity here with some tannin as well. It carries well with excellent length and some minerality. An authentic Chianti experience at prime!


Critical Praise

91 Points by Wine Align, October 2019

Rather classic stuff, dusty, floral, resinous, pot pourri-inflected, an intriguing aromatic mix all in all. The palate is sleek and lean but not shrill nor hard, with very fine-grained tannins, balanced acids and very good length. A fine wine for the vintage, perfectly in line and representative. Ready to enjoy or short hold for even more savoury character.
