Wine EnthusiastSmooth and delicious, this opens with inviting scents of raspberry jam, cake spice, violet and a whiff of forest floor. The savory, juicy palate doles out ripe Marasca cherry, truffle and star anise framed in polished tannins. Drink through 2022.

Wine SpectatorThis juicy red has grip, setting the backdrop for pure cherry, blueberry, earth, iron and tobacco flavors. Though light-weight, this should develop over the next three to five years. Best from 2019 through 2024. 5,000 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chianti Classico is an easy and accessible red wine with good quality fruit. Sangiovese in this harvest delivers layers of plumpness and ripeness and you definitely get both those things here. The Tuscan grape is blended with 10% Merlot. That generous delivery translates to the mouthfeel where the wine offers sweet berry flavors and a piquant touch of wild spice. Some 120,000 bottles were produced.
