Il Chiorba Chianti Classico Riserva Sangiovese Blend 2013

This is a supremely enjoyable Chianti. Fabulous nose: raspberry (!) and macerated cherry, a funky yeasty (sponti?) note, dry gravel and crushed rock, baking spices. Chiseled in the mouth, with loads of minerality, great acids, and a long, drying finish where cherry and crushed stone both try to outlast each other. Some decent fine-grained tannin to create structure. Great now, and will get better over the next 2-3 years. Classic. — 9 days ago

Castello di Volpaia

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

So much promise on this young Chianti Classico. Earthy deep cherry on the nose. Prominent but very fine tannins and loads of dark cherry notes. Very tight and even unyelding after pop. Needs well over 1h to open. This will be a great wine in 3-5years — 14 hours ago

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2013

2013 Carpineto chianti classico riserva !
The nose is bla bla bla. The over all impression is a light wine with a tart finish. Actually, that is all I have to say.

Tesoro Della Regina

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2014

An interesting wine. Bouquet was forward with cedar and strawberry. Legs were slow to come down. A 2014 vintage but already a mature wine. The flavor was ‘strawberry pie’ (a gentle sweet but not acidic). The taste on the palate is long and stable; still tasting the taste minutes after the last sip. One reviewer mentioned ‘weird’ and I would agree but it may me pause and carefully consider the taste and aroma together. We’re sipping at this time, but this would do well with almost any tomato based pasta/Italian meat dish. Likely too strong for cream based dishes or fish dishes. This was very interesting and would definitely have again. — 4 hours ago

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2014

I’ve had all my best #antinori bottles in nice restaurants. This 2010 #chianticlassicoriserva Riserva has that classic earthy, slightly spicy #sangiovese yet up front with dark fruit, expressive cherry flavors. Other reviewers noticed harsh tannins but I found them well integrated. So satisfying with a nice Italian meal. — 7 days ago

Beautiful purple - brown color. Sweet figgy and earthy nose. Soft, sweet and earthy palate - a little dried orange peel note with spices popping in the pairing with lasagne. Delicious and balanced. 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo. Frankly, amazing for a 52 year old Chianti Riserva. — 13 days ago

Drank 6/16/18.
Nice pairing with sausage lasagne.

Medium nose of black and red cherry, with some tar. Flavors of black cherry, earth, tar, and some tobacco leaf. Medium plus tannins add support without being distracting. Medium finish. A darker style of Chianti Classico.

3/22/8/4/3 + 50= 90 pts.

Gran Selezione Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2011

The 2011 Gran Selezione is a rich, powerful Chianti on the darker side profile wise. Cloves and blackberries on the palate. Sustains well. — 22 days ago
