Foho Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2012

This is my last bottle of this superb CCR. All sorts of secondary and tertiary scents found on. Gravel, sandstone, roasted herbs, almost a eucalyptus thing, iodine, macerated dark cherry, exotic spice market. Perfectly balanced in the mouth, with great acids and flavors that still seem youthful despite being 8 years old. Great stuff. — 4 days ago

Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga

Riserva Rancia Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2006

Excellent bottle! Cherry, damp earth, lovely Sangiovese bite. Texture here is great. This had another gear compared to the 2004 Rancia, I posted on earlier this week. — 2 days ago

Yes, great stuff when aged!

Marchesi Mazzei

Fonterutoli Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2014

Cellar musty nose that wears off after a bit.

Solid fruit, berry blended and a great mouthfeel. Touches of mint, all those tannins softer after a couple of hours of air.
A solid CC.

9.1

WS writes “Expressive and smooth, this hits all the right notes, with pure black cherry, black currant and violet flavors. Touches of earth, iron and tobacco add complexity. Shows fine harmony and length.” Rated #19 of the top WS 2018,s. I agree with everything that they say only add @ $19.00 USD buy every bottle that you. Stay safe and healthy Cheers 🍷🇮🇪 — 2 days ago

@Dawn E. @Trixie Dawn & Trixie this is really a great wine at this price point. Trixie sadly I bought it in Whitefish MT so we were limited on how much we could bring back. I am confident that you can pick it up at one of the major shops in Calgary. Cheers 🇨🇦

@P A Montana is a gorgeous state. I'll look for it sometime I'm out. We're east of Calgary - think Roughriders. 🏈 😄

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2016

Showing the power of the vintage! Lots of red fruit well wrapped in acidity. Still very tannic though, these will be consumed before reaching full maturity — 8 days ago

Tenuta di Arceno

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

Had this with grilled pizza and it was excellent. Classic cherry and leather. Just enough tannin to balance with the food. Still nice after dinner. Reviews on this here weren’t so good, but this was a 2016. Maybe better? I would buy this again. — 16 days ago

Ruffino

Riserva Ducale Oro Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

In 1877, Illario and Leopoldo Ruffino laid the foundations of their dream to make Italian wines from the heart of Tuscany. Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruit and earthy spice. On the palate black cherry, blackberry and plum flavors with tobacco, pepper and earthy cedar notes. Full-bodied, well balanced soft tannins on a smooth medium+ finish. Grab pizza or pasta and enjoy the great value wine. — 8 days ago

Fattoria Viticcio

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

Beautiful cherry and tar. This is a seamless, elegant match for a tomato sauce- based dinner. Can be a little tannic without the food, but some intense flavors. — 9 days ago

Love Viticcio. Used to sell it with Paramount in 83-84.

Isole e Olena

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

Loads of lifted but dark fruit: blackberries, plums, cherries, rose and a herbal lavender/rosemary quality. Elegant and nicely balanced overall. Really shining on day two. Love. — 10 days ago

Well made wine overshadowed tonight by the Radici and Siro Pacenti wines. I am glad they have stopped using Cab in this wine from 2013. — 14 days ago
