Wine SpectatorOffers enticing aromas of black cherry, leather, tobacco, iron and earth. Well-structured and full of ripe fruit, this builds to a vibrant, tannic finish, with a lingering aftertaste of iron, cherry and leather. Should develop beautifully. Best from 2020 through 2032. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 4,600 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chianti Classico is a stylish and contemporary wine with dark concentration and broad appeal. It sees 90% Sangiovese blended with 10% Merlot. It delivers its intensity with force across the board with a lasting and generous disposition. The wine reveals aromas of dark cherry and prune with spice, tobacco and Spanish cedar. The oak impact is strong and needs a year or so to better integrate. If you are looking for a soft and rich value wine to pair with steak or pork chops, this wine is up to the task for sure. Some 50,000 bottles were produced.
Wine EnthusiastThis opens with aromas of red plum and baking spice. It's straightforward, with black cherry, clove and ground pepper flavors alongside smooth tannins.
