Raspberry, cocoa powder, late summer herbs and a tiny drop of VA. A rich, soft 2015 that shows more than adequate concentration. Crowd pleasing. An underrated estate, in my opinion...and the wines are always good value. #volpaia #sangiovese #chianticlassico

Why does it seem like wines automatically get worse when the supermarket shelves find them?

Dry. Fruity. Berries with a tiny bit of orange peel or grapefruit? Need 1hr+ decanting. Good Chianti!

Red garnets with flares of spice and raspberry. Nice tannins with a refreshing finish. Clean and enjoyable.

A total steal, and pretty damn tasty to boot. Tons of red fruit, especially tart cherries, and wafts from a brick pizza oven. Maybe a little too tangy (definite iron here) but that’s just nitpicking - a very enticing wine.
