Castagnoli

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2015

Not to be confused with Rocca di Castagnoli. This is “cool-climate” Sangiovese if you will. Medium bodied with an amplification of secondary flavors like smoke and leather. Cheap enough that you’ll want to throw some in your wild boar ragu and drink the rest while you cook. Cin cin! — 4 days ago

Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

Color of grayish purple, quite clear with a bit orange note. Nose is balanced fragrance with dried strawberry, spice, tobacco leaves, cured meat, and more sweet berries. Taste is light, and follows the nose, right amount of acidity and tannins, zest, just a bit sweetness shows her subtlety, more cured meaty note dancing with the berry note. Aftertaste shows backbone of tannins, medium long with savory spice, acidity and sweetness. Pretty good. — 11 days ago

Kirkland Signature

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2015

Color is light purple, ruby, bloody grapefruit, and a bit grey, very clean. Nose of spice, dried strawberries, a bit peppery, quite light, some wet mushrooms, actually remind me of Pinot noir. Taste follows the nose, with addition of zesty note, low tannings, and also quite light. Nothing to complain with the price, just lighter than I thought, but everything is on par. — 16 days ago
