About the Wine
89 points, Jeb Dunnuck
“Starting with the 2020 Chianti Classico, this is a dark and brooding wine on the nose, with aromas of graphite, black plum, and candied licorice. It is full-bodied and meaty, with a softly textured mouthfeel, and tangy with tart black cherry, orange pith, and fresh soil. It is warming and has a fairly long finish with angular acidity. It may benefit from a few more months in bottle to harmonize but can be drunk over the coming 5-6 years.”

Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini owns Borgo Scopeto, along with Altesino, Caparzo, and Doga delle Clavule, and she and winemaker Massimo Bracalente are responsible for all aspects of the production of Borgo Scopeto wines. The first bottle of Chianti Classico with the Borgo Scopeto label dates back to 1990.
