Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2015

Another stunner from 2015. I love this producer and the purity of its style. A reference point wine with drop dead gorgeous and slightly rustic fall aromas with a hint of bergamot and leather. Flavors of sour cherry, pomegranate, orange peel and warm spices framed by sinewy tannins and ripping acidity. — 4 days ago

Tenuta di Renieri

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2013

Tried this a few months ago and the alcohol dominated. It's mellowed quite nicely and the alcohol takes a second fiddle to the smoother tannins. Nice fruit balance of a classic Sangiovese. — 15 days ago

Barberino Val D'Elsa Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2015

This is the private label used by Garagiste for stuff from Italy. But the cork gives away the secret. 2015 is a low acid year but this one keeps its balance. Ripe macerated cherry fruit augmented by warm gravelly earth. Classic. Medium bodied and very pure tasting. Nice intensity but so balanced. Fruit, acid, tannin. — 6 days ago

Rocca delle Macìe

Famiglia Zingarelli Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

Color of ruby with brown note. Nose of dried sweet strawberries, savory spice, ripe cherry, a bit leathery, a bit minty, a bit tobacco leaves, and some strength of alcohol. Taste is smooth with hint of sweetness from dried strawberries and grapes, low tannins, black pepper, tinkling sensation on the rim of the tongue, zest, and a bit mineral. Aftertaste shows more grape flavors, mineral and peppery note, medium length, a bit too much bitter note in the aftertaste. — 18 days ago

Gran Selezione Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

This is Not in the the DB!
This is not a blend. 100% sangiovese.
Disappointing... Basically, this is an average Chianti Classico with a fancy label. In a previous review I was complementary on their Vino Nobile but this quite frankly is a rip off. It's a 90 point wine, but I'm ticked...

Moore Brothers 9/18/19 Italian Intro #5. Ruby color cherry tobacco nose with hints of prunes and Sherry. Interesting and complex and shows some age. Very lively supple texture and balance with acids and fruits and long finish. What an elegant and tasty Chianti. Made by Paolo — 2 days ago
