Campomaggio Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2016

I remember not being impressed with the first bottle I had of this, but this bottle is very nice. It’s a relatively easy-going rendition of a CCR, but with some complexity. Nose has sandalwood, ripe red berry fruit, some gravel and musky spice. In the mouth, there’s fairly concentrated ripe fruit in a very soft and flowing framework. Good length. Nice value for near-term drinking or cellaring a couple of years. — 12 days ago

Casa Emma

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

Popped and poured; DIAM cork. The 2015 Casa Emma CC pours a deep ruby color with a translucent but near opaque core with no obvious staining of the tears. Medium viscosity. On the nose, medium+ intensity with notes of super funky cherry (not Brett), dried herbs, porcini, menthol and cardamom. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ tannin and medium+ acid. Finish is medium and satisfying. Confirmed are the notes of cherry accompanied by dusty earth notes and orange bitters. Drink now and enjoy. — 19 days ago

Castello di Monsanto

Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna il Poggio 2015

Good Chianti, but not extraordinary. This wine is ready to drink immediately upon opening, making it a good restaurant choice. The wine did not last long: if decanted, it will lose its flavor, and I do not believe it will age any longer. Good classic Chianti flavor including leather and cherry followed by an astringent bite in the long finish. — 6 days ago

Carpineto

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2018

Lovely Chianti as I remember from 20 years ago. Bright fruit, lip-smacking acidity, and not remotely trying to be brunello. I miss this. — 16 hours ago
