Gallo Nero, elected King of Tuscany by the critics

Great success for the Chianti Classico, the most awarded denomination of the Tuscan landscape.

At the hills of Chianti Classico the highest awards of the critics, from the record number of Three glasses assigned by the Gambero Red to the stellar scores of critics like Antonio Galloni, Monica Larner e James Suckling. Accomplice to an iconic vintage like the 2016, the three hundredth harvest from the first official recognition as a production area of ​​origin

The days of the fiasco are over, as the critic Eric Asimov recalled in June in the New York Times. The Chianti Classico, while the producers are bringing the grapes of an exceptional harvest to the cellar, as 2019 promises to be, it is crowned by the Italian and international critics as one of the best wines of the Bel Paese, able to pleasantly surprise those who will have the patience to wait for their evolutions in the bottle in the coming years.

Instead of King of Tuscany, the title of Grand Duke would be more appropriate, in homage to Cosimo III de 'Medici, who with foresight in the 1716 delimited the production area of ​​today's Chianti Classico DOCG. The three hundredth harvest of the Black Rooster region was as successful as ever.

La Gambero Rosso Guide which attributes the areas Three glasses, as a maximum score, has awarded 24 Chianti Classico, a record in the history of the denomination, but also a record in the regional sphere: the Black Rooster clearly distinguishes its Tuscan colleagues and comes second at the national level in the 2020 edition, behind only Barolo, which sees only one more label awarded.

On the columns of Journal of Sport the ranking of Best Italian Wine Awards rewards one Gran Selection of Castellina in Chianti, 2014 vintage, demonstrating that, even in less fortunate years, the producers of the Black Rooster have consistently maintained their commitment to quality.

Over a third of the crowns of the Guide of the Touring Club "Vinibuoni d'Italia", specialized in native vines, goes to the Chianti Classico (16 labels on 45 awarded in Tuscany), highlighting the strong identity of Chianti Classico true to its roots. Daniele Cernilli, aka Doctor Wine, sign the guide Essential Guide to Italian Wines, including figure la Barone Ricasoli as company of the year and many more Chianti Classico between 98 and 95 points.

Even abroad, the 2016 vintage of Chianti Classico has unanimously convinced critics, who reward it as a vintage of great elegance and harmony, indeed, it is even defined as a point of reference with which to measure itself in the future (A modern day benchmark, Antonio Galloni). Although the highest scores (equal to or above the 95 points) are mostly attributed to Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, there are also wines Reserve o Vintage on top of the rankings of Antonio Galloni of Vinous.com (10 labels with scores equal to or greater than 95 points), Monica Larner of Wine Advocate (31 labels), James Suckling (31 labels) e Bruce Sanderson of Wine Spectator (11 labels). As is customary in American magazines, the best time to taste it is indicated for each label - and Chianti Classico is unanimously recognized as a wine capable of long aging.

The Chianti Classico can therefore be said to be the most awarded denomination of the Tuscan landscape.

2019 vintage. It looks like a classic vintage. The spring rains have allowed the creation of important water reserves, suitable for facing a moderately hot summer and characterized by reduced rainfall. The climate on average more rigid and humid in the first half of the year has slightly delayed the vegetative cycle of the vine compared to the last years, with a cadence of the times that recalls the great vintages of the 80 years. A hot but regular summer, with no particular peaks of heat or abundant rainfall, was followed by a September characterized by good weather and large temperature ranges, which allowed the perfect phenolic ripening of the grapes. In the winery these days perfectly healthy grapes are brought and in terms of quantity produced it is in line with the 2018. Although it is still early for the final judgments, everything makes us hope for another "stellar" vintage for the Chianti Classico Gallo Nero.
