Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

Color of bubbly purple mixed with saturated ruby. Nose of nice aldehyde and dried strawberry, a bit minty, vanilla, and cured meat. The nose is plenty. Taste follows the nose with addition of refined tannins, zest, black pepper, oak, and fruity notes like dried sweetness. Aftertaste shows some more solid tannins, slight sweetness, some more peppery note, and savory. — 2 days ago

Cavaliere d'Oro Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2017

Went back to this well to verify that it’s the best midlevel Chianti offering if you’re trapped in the 1980s hellscape that is buying wine in Pennsylvania. It’s your best bet. — 9 days ago

Fattoria Viticcio

Vendemmia 51 Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2016

A very Bordeaux-styled Chianti. The nose shows dark cherry candy fruit, cracked stone, and some toasty French oak. In the mouth, there are lids of cigar box notes competing with some cherry fruit. There a lots of savory notes and a slightly bitter barrel note on the finish. Very good, but feels a tad contrived. — 3 days ago

Riserva Rancia Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2009

1st of 4. Double decanted 1 hour prior to consumption. This is a solid, but not spectacular Rancia. Cherry, damp earth with a nice tannic bite on the finish. Time to drink these. — a day ago

Riserva Berardo Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2009

This used to be burly. Tannins have softened. It has become rather elegant with the flavors of Chianti you expect. — a day ago

Tenuta di Arceno

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2017

This wine has a medium-dark garnet hue and offers a nose of black cherry, anise, vanilla and cedar. On the palate, we find red fruit, a bit of tart cherry and savory notes from the ten months of oak aging. The tannins are a little toothy, but will do a nice job on a steak. — 22 days ago
