Caparsa

Riserva Caparsino Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2007

Кожа, табак, слива, спелая черешня, чёрная смородина, подлесок, эвкалипт, земля. Уверенное среднее тело с гармоничной кислотностью и в меру заметными, почти интегрированными танинами. Удачная возрастная форма, придающая благородство некогда броской концентрации фрукта. Аккуратная бочка, тёплый тембр. Хорошее сочетание все ещё жовиальной энергетики и развивающейся третичной ароматики. Типично и убедительно. — 3 days ago

Coltibuono

Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2011

Super delightful, especially for the price. A bit farty upon opening but with plenty of air (I’ll decant the rest) shows crystalline pure red cherry fruit, savory herbs, and red clay soil. By now, tannins are very soft but acid is forward and fruit-driven, which keeps it interesting. Drinking great with a red sauce. I’ve seen this around, and may grab a few more bottles for casual drinking at an everyday price. — 10 days ago

Marchesi Mazzei

Ser Lapo Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2014

A vigilant assault of well aged grapes enveloped my mouth, while subtle hints of cherry welcomely molested my palate. Enjoy it with pizza, rosé pasta, or a whip and handcuffs. — 7 days ago

Isole e Olena

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

Tightly wound and reticent at first, the 2015 Isole demands more attention and patience than the prior vintage. It’s the typical pretty, elegant and polished style but the tannins are less forgiving and the minerality will put your face right in the dirt. Think forest-scented wild red berries, savory spice, potpourri and sprinkles of cigar ash. Probably enough acid to power most kitchen appliances- if this becomes a habit you’ll need a good dental plan. Chianti at its finest! — 15 days ago

Barone Ricasoli

Castello di Brolio Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend

Great aged Chianti coming into its stride. Brooding nose of dried red fruit. The color is a dark burgundy. Pallet has medium tannins that are pretty well integrated at this point but still add a spicy kick. Mostly driven by tertiary flavors of tobacco, leather, and aged wood. — 8 hours ago

Tenuta di Capraia

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2013

Lovely dark cork. A bit sharp when first opened but smooths rapidly with airing. Rich oaky tannins, hint of black pepper underlying blackberries & dark cherries, hint of plum. Excellent & easy to drink. — 8 days ago

Castello di Cacchiano

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2006

Kicking off the 2018 Labor Day weekend!
Just a killer bottle to pair along side some massive bone-in ribeye on charcoal grill. Cherry, pipe tobacco, leather, fully resolved tannins. Close to peak on this bottle, likely could still be enjoyed again before 2022.

It was, and I'd never heard of them either. A friend brought this bottle, she found it in an out of the way spot, that will be getting some more investigation now...

Monteraponi

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2014

Old-school aged Chianti scents of iron, sandstone-scented gravel, sour cherry and underbrush. The first sip actually flashed me back to the last time I was in Italy (in the mid 89s!). A little advanced for a ‘14 but very nice. Soft and mouthfilling, with really nice balance. Terrific with my Sunday meat sauce. Drink up and enjoy. — 13 days ago

Il Molino di Grace

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2014

Solid Chianti! Medium purple color. Nose filled with earth, tannins, and spice. Wine is expressive with cherry and tobacco flavors. Finish is more reserved and milder than expected. Nice QPR! — 8 days ago
