93Wine Spectator

Cherry, strawberry, earth, graphite and tobacco aromas and flavors grapple with stiff tannins, but find equilibrium on the long finish.

93Vinous / IWC

Rich, ample and creamy, it is endowed with serious volume to match its racy personality... Expressive floral notes give the wine just the right amount of aromatic lift to balance some of the natural richness of the year. What a gorgeous wine this is!

92James Suckling

Extremely floral and beautiful with cherry, raspberry and violet aromas. Medium body, tangy and fresh with a fine tannin backbone and a flavorful finish.

Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico

Chianti is Tuscany’s most famous and historic wine district, and the Chianti Classico DOCG is the most prestigious Chianti appellation. Fittingly, it is located in the heart of the larger Chianti DOCG. Chianti’s wines were so esteemed during the Renaissance that the Medici princes of Florence designated several villages within the Chianti region as discrete production zones, setting up the first appellations in Italy. By the 20th century Chianti was Italy’s primary wine export. But the pizza parlor Chiantis sent to foreign markets were inexpensive, unremarkable reds presented in round-bottomed, straw-covered bottles. To upgrade Chianti wines and the region’s image, the Chianti Classico DOC was created in 1967, then upgraded to DOCG status in 1984, with additional modifications made in 1996. In the last 20 years a consortium of Chianti Classico producers have researched new Sangiovese clones, replanted vineyards, updated cellar practices and generally made Chianti Classico DOCG a world-class appellation. Chianti Classico must contain a minimum of 75% Sangiovese. In the 2014 edition of its annual compendium of wine ratings, Gambero Rosso noted that Chianti Classico DOCG wines were noteworthy for their “significant return to a more defined style, true to tradition.”
