Chianti Classico Riserva Sangiovese 2014

Ruby, a blend of 90% Sangioveto, 5% Canaiolo and 5% Ciliegiolo grown in the Il Poggiale vineyard, and spent 18 months in French (1 year old). Red fruit aromas and floral spice. On the palate cherry and raspberry with notes of sweet earthy spice. Fine tannins on a medium+ finish, good balance with acidity yielding to a fresh ending with a zing of spice. Nice! — 4 years ago

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2018

Delectable Wine

The 2018 Chianti Classico is an absolutely joyous wine. Bright red cherry fruit, tangy acids and sweet floral notes all run a translucent, super-expressive Chianti Classico that quite frankly knocks it out of the park. The 2018 is so delineated, so vibrant and just so incredibly delicious. The purity of the flavors is just remarkable. The oak needs a bit of time to fully integrate, but it already has over the last few months. This is what Sangiovese (called Sangioveto here) and Chianti Classico are all about. Best of all, the 2018 is a screaming value. Don't miss it. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2020) — 2 years ago

Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2018

Poured into a decanter about two hours before service; no formal notes. The 2018 Montevertine is a bit of a show-off with bright, flashy ripened cherries, porchini, red flowers, dusty earth and orange peel. Significant structure should allow for a hearty life. The finish is full of class. This has to be the aspiration of every Chianti Classico. — 2 months ago

Aromas and flavors of dark cherry with notes of earth, black peppercorns, tobacco and dark chocolate. A touch of menthol on the long finish. Enormous richness. Dark purple color.
