This has a deeper nose, and extraction on the palate. Displays a mid-palate warmth, and weighty mouthfeel. Luscious, suave mouthfeel. Very well behaved. Good stuff. — 3 days ago

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

The nose is a bit harsh with some heavy tar and muted herbaceous notes, but the mouthfeel is a bit lighter with dark cherry, cedar, and faint peppery notes...opening up as it rests in the glass... — 6 hours ago

Castellare di Castellina

Vigna Il Poggiale Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2010

My second one of these. This is now in its drinking window, but remains a darker, bigger boned Chianti than I tend to gravitate towards. Best with a meat dish. — 9 days ago

Borgo Scopeto (Tenuta Caparzo)

Vigna Misciano Riserva Chianti Classico DOCG Sangiovese Blend 2018

Strong aroma of cherries and blackberries, with more subtle fruit flavor that’s mixed with limestone, oak, and bell pepper. Long finish, with medium and well balanced acidity and tannins. Overall very good, matching well with tomato-driven food (Italian, Mexican, etc.). — a month ago

Isole e Olena

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2010

Absolutely fabulous Chianti Classico. Just as great as it was upon release but with more complexity and slightly mellowed character. To me at prime drinking window with plenty of freshness still with the red berry toned pure sangiovese fruit, nice powdery tannins supporting the frame and excellent slightly floral finish. — 11 days ago
