Gran Selezione Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

This is Not in the the DB!
This is not a blend. 100% sangiovese.
Disappointing... Basically, this is an average Chianti Classico with a fancy label. In a previous review I was complementary on their Vino Nobile but this quite frankly is a rip off. It's a 90 point wine, but I'm ticked...

Carpineto

St. Ercolano Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2009

Pent up funk is released on open. Deep dark ruby in color, medium+ body. Gorgeous stewed red fruit aromas, with red bell pepper, potting soil, and a hint of mint. Most of this carries through on the palate, add a touch of spearmint and red licorice. This is one of the more complex Tuscan wines that I've had in a long time. Unfortunately, the finish doesn't complete the stellar review. The tannins are very pronounced, bone dry-- perhaps they would soften will even more bottle age? At 14% ABV there's not much more to burn off. I'm not trying to be a hard ass, but it's only the finish that prevents this from being a 96 point wine for me.

Rocca delle Macìe

Famiglia Zingarelli Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

Color of ruby with brown note. Nose of dried sweet strawberries, savory spice, ripe cherry, a bit leathery, a bit minty, a bit tobacco leaves, and some strength of alcohol. Taste is smooth with hint of sweetness from dried strawberries and grapes, low tannins, black pepper, tinkling sensation on the rim of the tongue, zest, and a bit mineral. Aftertaste shows more grape flavors, mineral and peppery note, medium length, a bit too much bitter note in the aftertaste. — 18 days ago

Moore Brothers 9/18/19 Italian Intro #5. Ruby color cherry tobacco nose with hints of prunes and Sherry. Interesting and complex and shows some age. Very lively supple texture and balance with acids and fruits and long finish. What an elegant and tasty Chianti. Made by Paolo — 2 days ago

Salcheto

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2014

For the price paid, this delivers what it promises. The nose is red fruit and tobacco leaf it does have almost a volcanic red clay sort of thing going on. Entry shows very bright acidity with medium body, raspberry, tobacco. Had a green-ness to it...green olive, capers, hint of green onion... showing in the middle. Definitely not in a bad way. On the finish , a hint of white pepper but a surprising amount of stiff oak tannin on the finish suggests this one still has at least a couple of years left. Holding the other bottle to pair with salmon and lemon/garlic/butter sauce and capers, and rosemary and garlic potatoes. — 11 days ago

Villa Graziella

Riserva Chianti Sangiovese Blend 2015

A deep Ruby colored wine with aromas of herbal and vegetable tones, cherry and blackberry on the nose.
This organic, 100% hand picked grape Wine come aged in French Oak is a wonderful blend that starts off with some sour cherry fruit the Cabernet give some structure and a longer finish. Nice maturity with vegetable and mushroom tones, balanced tannins, and give it some air to really show its character.
This organic, 100% hand pick Grape Wine pairs well with shrimp Venezia that has spinach fettuccine, artichoke hearts, black olives in a tomato basil sauce. You should be hungry by now. Enjoy this excellent blend. Winesbyrenee.com.

Castell'in Villa

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2015

Another stunner from 2015. I love this producer and the purity of its style. A reference point wine with drop dead gorgeous and slightly rustic fall aromas with a hint of bergamot and leather. Flavors of sour cherry, pomegranate, orange peel and warm spices framed by sinewy tannins and ripping acidity. — 4 days ago
