Castello di Volpaia

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

High acidity in the bouquet. Lemon, lime. The smell of roses burned.

I don’t usually enjoy Chianti, but I must admit I haven’t really give it a fair shot either. A few bad impressions have left me gravitating towards the northern Piedmont region.

The acidity and tartness work here. Listening to Cajun folk pop music, reading a book by candlelight, and staying in from the eminent winter storm outside, this wine promises to keep me warm, surprised, and as leafy jovial as a Spring day in Central Park.

This is a juicy treat of a wine — one that makes me astonished how the Earth can sprout something so jammy and full of life from its soil and soul.

Castelli del Grevepesa (Castelgreve)

Chianti Sangiovese Blend 2014

This pleasant #chianticlassico was a perfect accompaniment to the perfect bruschetta that was shared among friends. Deep garnet hue offered a note of currant and a touch of blackberry, coupled with a moderate mineral aroma and voila! #castelgreve #chianti #redwine #italianwines #jamessuckling90pts — 9 months ago

Riserva Montesodi Castello di Nipozzano Chianti Rùfina Sangiovese 2012

Nipozzano!!!!! The 2012 Nipozzano #chianti Riserva has to be probably my favorite Chianti. The product of a cold wet winter and spring followed but a dry hot summer... this wine has a nice ruby color. With a welcoming floral and fruity bouquet. Raspberry, licorice and cherry are followed by sweet notes of ripe juicy strawberries and plum. The finish is long, fruity with some floral notes and a slight hint of spice... maybe pepper?
I have to say it again, I just love this wine!!!!

Terre di Corzano Chianti Sangiovese Blend 2015

A darker, richer style...yet it remains true to type and authentic. Clean, dense and concentrated, it’s easy to ID as ‘15 on sight alone. Raspberry and saddle shop. Great value. #chianti #corzanoepaterno — a year ago
