Wine SpectatorElegant and tense, evoking rose, cherry, strawberry and spice flavors, with refined tannins holding court as this winds down on the finish. Shows fine harmony, but needs a few years to really hit its stride. Best from 2019 through 2027. 10,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastAromas of red-skinned berry, tobacco and blue flower take center stage. The easygoing palate shows juicy Marasca cherry, cinnamon and a touch of star anise alongside lithe tannins.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chianti Classico shows overtly sweet fruit flavors at the first sip. The bouquet is fragrant and bright with ripe cherry, blueberry and more primary notes to follow. The wine is simple and delineated with a nice progression of Sangiovese flavors to keep your attention. Pair this Chianti Classico with spicy onion and sausage pizza. Some 120,000 bottles were made.
