Wine SpectatorThe cherry and plum flavors are matched by leather, tobacco and almond notes in this sinewy red. Stays balanced and long, with the ripe fruit offset by dusty tannins. Best from 2020 through 2035. 800 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Brolio (made with 80% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) reveals a tight structure with fine textural knitting and overlapping fruit flavors. The wine's seamless integration is very impressive. It shows bright fruit flavors that are offset by spice, tar, smoke and grilled herb. There is nothing too heavy about this Riserva, and that's the best part yet. The mouthfeel is buoyant, long and finessed. This wine is fermented in stainless steel (with up to 16 days on the skins), and it is aged in neutral oak for 18 months. Some 60,000 bottles were made.

Wine EnthusiastThis robust red is 80% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. It opens with aromas of black currant, cedar and a hint of violet while the firmly structured palate offers dried black cherry, vanilla, licorice and a touch of mocha. Assertive but polished tannins provide support.
