Wine SpectatorThough saturated with black currant and blackberry fruit and backed by opaque tannins, this red is pure and balanced. Thyme, iron, leather and tar notes give this complexity, while the finish goes into overtime. Best from 2023 through 2040. 2,500 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateMade with organically farmed fruit, the 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva (100% Sangiovese) is a very expressive and generous Tuscan red from a beautifully sunny and warm vintage. The wine is succulent, soft and round with lingering flavors of dark berry and summer ripe cherry. The mid-weight mouthfeel is balanced and very lively, thanks to the dazzling fruit that is teeming with spirit and energy. Some 60,000 bottles were produced.
