In the beautiful olive and cypress-studded countryside between Florence and  Siena lay the quaint hilltop villages of the Chianti Classico region. The wine of the same name is produced exclusively in this charming and beautiful area.

Color: intense ruby red with garnet reflections.

Bouquet: elegant, full, harmonious and persistent with suggestions of  vanilla and raspberry. 

Flavor: long and velvety, full, generous and warm.

Wine SpectatorSmells like a little Cabernet Sauvignon enhancing the Sangiovese in this black currant- and cherry-flavored red (but it's actually Canaiolo, with a bit of Mammolo and Colorino). Cedar, thyme, iron and sanguine notes round out the palate as this cruises to a lingering aftertaste. Shows excellent structure and balance. Best from 2020 through 2035. 17,800 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva is a richly textured expression that is packed tight with ripe fruit, black cherry, moist soil and cigar box. You get a lot of power and density in this warm-climate Tuscan red (made with 90% Sangiovese and 20% Canaiolo). In fact, it almost goes overboard, maybe just for a moment, but ultimately regains and maintains its sense of balance. Cured tobacco and smoke fill in the rear. Some 200,000 bottles were produced.
