Winemaker Notes :

A genuine and characteristic expression of the Sangiovese varietal, Chianti Classico has a deep, dense ruby red color. Wild berries, sour black cherry, thyme and leather feature on the nose. Though bold and dry, the taste is softened by the delicate sweetness of the French oak.

Wine SpectatorOffers enticing aromas of black cherry, leather, tobacco, iron and earth. Well-structured and full of ripe fruit, this builds to a vibrant, tannic finish, with a lingering aftertaste of iron, cherry and leather. Should develop beautifully. Best from 2020 through 2032. 1,200 cases imported. From Italy.

Wine Advocate The 2015 Chianti Classico is a stylish and contemporary wine with dark concentration and broad appeal. It sees 90% Sangiovese blended with 10% Merlot. It delivers its intensity with force across the board with a lasting and generous disposition. The wine reveals aromas of dark cherry and prune with spice, tobacco and Spanish cedar. The oak impact is strong and needs a year or so to better integrate. If you are looking for a soft and rich value wine to pair with steak or pork chops, this wine is up to the task for sure.
