Castello di Ama

Vigneto San Lorenzo Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2013

Sangiovese with a left bank vibe, dry and cedary, but nuanced and pure. Needs 2-3 more years in bottle, this will improve. β€” 6 days ago

Dievole

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2015

2015 is surprisingly restrained and muted in the early going, really taking a while to show aromatic presence. Delicate rose bouquet, faint layers of tobacco, spice and decaying autumn leaves in the background. But on the palate it is showing the texture of pure silk, with seamless structure and impossibly smooth contours. Gentle tannic grip and very deceptive concentration. Needs bottle time for flavor development, but already a pleasure to drink for its purity, finesse and elegance. β€” 8 hours ago

Istine

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2015

This is a LOT of Chianti for your dollar. 2015 vintage has a ways to go in terms of attaining the proper harmony but the sheer intensity, focus and rustic beauty are superb. Pulsating with bright acid, mineral tension and dusty tannin. Tart red fruits and anise/cinnamon flavors light up the mid palate. Give it a serious decant now and it will be quite rewarding. Outstanding potential. β€” 9 days ago

Castellare di Castellina

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2016

Fairly simple Chianti. Black cherry, ripe plum, spice and tobacco. Fairly dark color and soft flesh on the mid palate with very medium tannins. Perhaps a bit of Merlot in the blend? β€” 5 days ago
