Interesting - this was on my list to watch out for as I have 15s and 16s but doesn’t seem the most sensible with the price rise. Will probably choose to spend that on earlier vintages instead.
I agree. I have just put this little order together instead (I had not spotted the Vino Nobile 2013 before):
|IT32461||Chianti Classico Brolio 2019||£16.50||3 Bottle||£49.50|
|IT24391||Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Contucci 2013||£18.00||3 Bottle||£54.00|
|IT25161||Brunello di Montalcino Canalicchio di Sopra 2013||£49.00||2 Bottle||£98.00|
|IT31091||Chianti Classico Riserva Castello La Leccia Giuliano 2016 ORGANIC||£22.00||2 Bottle||£44.00|
|IT30471||Chianti Rufina Riserva Frascole 2016 ORGANIC||£19.00||2 Bottle||£38.00|
Thanks for this. I agree the price hike seems steep however I’m a sucker for produttori and will add a couple of cases to reserves.
I had a 2017 verduno and it was very promising
I had not seen this one before either, should be popular and the price is good compared to lesser previous years:
Looks like someone read your comments… this is now ‘only’ £30!
Based on the many disappointing’17 Langhe Nebbiolos I have tasted I’ll be skipping this. The price increase for what is an inferior vintage makes it an easy decision.
Sadly I missed out on the ‘16 from TWS. I still hope to pick some up elsewhere.
Maybe if we wait another hour or two it will be £28, reverse auction style?
Now that would add a bit of tension into the wine buying process!
I’ve had that VNdM from L&W, it’s excellent - better than most Chianti, I reckon. VN tends to get overlooked unfairly IMO.
