Casanuova di Nittardi 'Vigna Doghessa' Chianti Classico DOCG 2018 750ml
This vintage shows a seal for certified organic fruit. The Nittardi 2018 Chianti Classico Casanuova di Nittardi Vigna Doghessa opens to a medium dark color and shows aromas of dried cherry, blue flower and potting soil. The wine's general taste profile is very faithful to Sangiovese, and you also get a good sense of the vintage with some warm-weather overtones of blackberry confit and soft plum. The tannins are integrated and open-knit. Last time I tasted this wine, my sample was not perfect. But this time around, the wine is singing and soaring. (ML) (10/2021)92 points James Suckling
Plenty of blackberries, black pepper, spice and black cherries on the nose and palate. It’s medium-bodied with a tight palate of fruit and tannins. A little reserved now. From organically grown grapes. Better in 2021. (7/2021)92 points Vinous
The 2018 Chianti Classico Vigna Doghessa Casanuova di Nittardi opens beautifully with a bit of time in the glass. Darker tonalities of Sangiovese fruit emerge, along with hints of lavender, game, menthol, licorice and tobacco that add character. The 2018 is a powerful wine, but it starts to show more floral lift and silkiness with aeration. This is one of the finer wines I have had from Nittardi of late. (AG) (9/2021)
