“The wonderful balance of perfume and structure make this a magnificent example of the brilliant 2015 Vintage” JW
Casuccio Tarletti is a small estate on the hills of the Chianti Classico zone overlooking Siena. It is owned by Bruna Baroncini whose excellent wines from the Tuscan region of Marrema I have sold for many years. At a recent tasting I tried their Chianti Classico for the first time and immediately realised this was something special. From the legendary 2015 vintage, this was a wine of extreme perfumed elegance with superb structure and I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered its modest price as I was expecting something close to £20 a bottle.
With limited stock available at the winery I swiftly requested a sample and showed it to colleagues in the trade. All agreed it was a delicious discovery and I have now secured the remaining 50 cases from the winery. As sole importer Songbird Wines will be offering an allocation to other UK wine merchants where it will have a price tag of circa £17 per bottle. However I am offering my private clients a pre-shipment offer price of £80 per 6 (£13.33 a bottle). This is an absolute bargain price for such a beautiful wine and when you taste it I’m sure you’ll agree!
2015 Chianti Classico, Casuccio Tarletti, Tuscany @ £80 Inc. VAT per case (6 bottles)
“You can not help but to be charmed by the delicate perfume of this wine with ripe, red cherry, hints of rose petal, vanilla and cinnamon. The palate is superb with more ripe cherry, soft tannins and a lovely freshness. The emphasis here is elegance and finesse rather than over-extraction and the wonderful balance of perfume and structure make this a magnificent example of the brilliant 2015 vintage. 100% Sangiovese.” Jonny Wren
