An alluring young Chianti Classico, with all the components in the right proportions. Features ample cherry, plum and berry fruit, with iron, earth and tobacco flavors and a firm, dense structure. Excellent length. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2022 through 2036. 14,000 cases made, 9,000 cases imported.
The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva is terrific. Silky, aromatic and expressive, the Riserva is a beautifully finessed wine from start to finish. Because of its mid-weight, gracious feel, the 2015 can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. This is an especially sleek style, with quite a bit of freshness for the year, but all the elements are nicely balanced." Rated 90 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva offers a thin and streamlined approach with bright cherry and forest berry aromas to keep it going. That said, one of the most interesting qualities on offer here is the low price point. You get an authentic taste of Sangiovese (blended with 5% Merlot) and Chianti Classico in what is a basic and stripped-down Riserva expression. Some 160,000 bottles were made.
