Great again...best of the Tuscan Chiantis. Previously rated, 2015 vintage. Accolades deserved...smooth but full, big flavor, perfect balance, perfect light tannins, palate of big berry, lingering finish hints that is reportedly aged in French Oak for over 18 mos...but a bit expensive.

Great! 2015. As close as a Chianti Reserva comes to being perfect...full-bodied silky smooth subtle balanced tannin fruit w/rare full flavor...but expensive - worth it for special occasion. This rating is from "palate memory"...will update on next bottle...pending opening with friends who don't believe in Chianti...BELIEVE...expensive but will drink again.
