Opinions on this vintage have always been extremely discordant. It was rated with 3 stars by the Chianti Classico Consortium.
In the Gaiole and Radda zones, it was rated very good, while in Greve and Panzano, the assessment was good but not enthusiastic. At Monsanto, the spring was rainy, while the weather stabilized in June and July. The grapes were fully ripe at harvest, with good sugar levels, and a touch of Nobilis Botrytis on some grapes.
