Borgo Scopeto Chianti Classico 2013 375ml Product #30015 (In Stock)
Borgo Scopeto Chianti Classico 2013 375ml Borgo Scopeto Chianti Classico 2013 375ml

Half Bottle.  A blend of Sangiovese plus 5% each of Colorino and Merlot aged in neutral cask.  Pretty and fresh with enough cut to handle red sauce nicely.

"Pretty cherry and strawberry notes pick up light touches of spice in this red, which is elegant, but needs air to show the fruit and tone down the oak. Fine length. Drink now through 2019."Wine Spectator 90 points

Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2013 Product #30794 (In Stock)
Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2013 Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2013

Here's our single best-selling Italian wine of the past five years - a fantastic value that tastes like it costs twice as much as it does. The wine is mainly (70%) Sangiovese and delivers plenty of that variety's juicy black cherry fruit. But, the 20% Merlot in the blend rounds out the mid-palate and keeps the wine soft while the secret ingredient -- 10% Sagrantino -- adds spice and complexity uncommon in Umbrian wines. Sure, it goes well with pizza and robust pasta sauces, but there's enough going on to handle game and hard, salty, cheeses and a soft enough finish just to drink at a party. Fantastic value.

San Crispino Chianti Classico 2013 Product #31128 (In Stock)
San Crispino Chianti Classico 2013 San Crispino Chianti Classico 2013

Proof that not all Chianti Classico is "serious" - although this is seriously fun to drink!  It's 100% Sangiovese from the best part of the Chianti zone with minimal wood influence.  It's bursting with juicy black cherry fruit with just a touch of earthy/leathery accents and spice. Really pumps out generous fruit over nicely grippy tannins.  An excellent value for pizza and pasta.

Poggio Alloro Chianti DOCG 2014 Product #30149 (In Stock)
Poggio Alloro Chianti DOCG 2014 Poggio Alloro Chianti DOCG 2014

Here’s proof that great farming and straight-ahead winemaking can deliver fine Chianti – and even finer value! – from outside the Classico zone.  More and more Chianti is either all Sangiovese or Sangiovese strengthened with dollops of Cabernet or Syrah.  Here, a family dedicated to natural, organic, farming turns back to Tuscan tradition to make Chianti from an old-school blend of grapes:  Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino and Ciliegiolo.  Sangiovese gives the wine heft and structure, while Canaiolo adds volume, Colorino deepens the color, and Ciliegiolo – Sangiovese’s genetic parent – soft red cherry fruit.

All of this comes together to deliver a ripe, zesty, Chianti that’s very easy to drink.  Ripe black and red cherry fruit forms the wine’s core and gains interest and complexity from accents of crushed violets, red licorice, rich earth, and sweet spice accents.  There’s no oak influence at all, allowing ripe fruit to shine through while retaining outstanding freshness and just the right touch of structure at the end.  A fine party Chianti, for sure, and one that will be as much fun to drink with a big bowl of pasta as with burgers or rosemary-scented pork.

A screaming deal!

"Penetrating ink and flint nuances complicate bright red cherry, strawberry and violet aromas on the enticing nose. Bright and fresh in the mouth, with creamy, floral red and dark cherry flavors and a persistent spiciness. A perfumed mineral tang repeats at the back. Very refined Rosso di Montalcino with sneaky concentration and lovely purity of fruit."  Vinous (Galloni) 90 points

Lucignano Chianti Colli Fiorentini 2013 Lucignano Chianti Colli Fiorentini 2013

One of the most consistently popular Chianti reds comes from the hills around Florence.  As always, it's a round, black-fruited, wine loaded with soft black cherry and plum flavors and just the right touch of earthy spice.  Juicy and a touch tangy on the finish, it's a solid choice for burgers, pasta, pizza or just to sip on its own. Nicely priced, too!

Gagliole Chianti Classico Rubiolo 2013 Product #30397 (In Stock)
Gagliole Chianti Classico Rubiolo 2013 Gagliole Chianti Classico Rubiolo 2013

We’ll call this “modern” Chianti Classico, in the sense that Sangiovese’s hard edges have been filed down to silky smoothness and that the sweet cherry fruit is allowed to sing through without being overwhelmed by earthy, leathery, notes (which were always more about poor cellar conditions more than Sangiovese itself).  But, it’s certainly “traditional” in the sense that there’s a solid base of tannin for support and that you’ll taste Chianti – both the place and its Sangiovese grape – rather than oak.  Mainly, though, we’ll call this “fun” – because that’s the best word to describe the pleasure you’ll get from drinking this lovely wine now – 2020 or so.

"The 2013 Chianti Classico Rubiolo is a gorgeous entry-level wine from Gagliole. Soft, fleshy and expressive, the 2013 hits all the right notes, with vibrant red cherry fruit and fabulous balance. Silky tannins add to an impression of finesse, while attractive floral and spiced notes give the wine an attractive upper register."  Vinous (Galloni) 91 points

"A red with raspberry, black pepper and lemon rind character. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Beautiful density of fruit here. Best Rubiolo ever."  James Suckling 92 points

"The 2013 Chianti Classico Rubiolo offers a pure core of bright cherry fruit with cherry liqueur and candied cherry for added intensity. Besides that very obvious cherry theme, the bouquet makes room for added spice, leather and polished mineral. Rubiolo offers a very elegant and clean presentation for those who enjoy the bright flavors and crisp nuances of Chianti Classico."Wine Advocate 91 points

Another great vintage of this pure, elegant, and very fine value Chianti!

"Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, mint and white pepper lift from the glass in the 2013 Chianti Classico. Floral and lifted, the 2013 is a terrific choice for drinking over the next few years. There is a lot to like in the wine's understated finesse and gracious, silky feel. This is a terrific example of a house style that emphasizes nuance and finesse." Vinous (Galloni) 90 points

"Full-bodied, round and fruity with a savory finish. Delicious and subtle. Drink now."  James Suckling 90 points

"Here's a charming, savory blend of Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo and Colorino that opens with aromas of red berry, violet and a whiff of sweet cake spice. The bright, juicy palate offers crunchy red berry, cinnamon, anise and orange zest while lithe tannins and fresh acidity offer support. Easy drinking and delicious, it's made for sheer drinking pleasure."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Castello La Leccia Chianti Classico 2013 Product #31110 (In Stock)
Castello La Leccia Chianti Classico 2013 Castello La Leccia Chianti Classico 2013

An old-school Chianti with deep aromas of scorched earth, cherry and spice lead to a plump mouthful of juicy cherry, red berry, earth, leather and more spice. Finishes clean and fresh with juicy acids and light tannins. The sweet, ripe, fruit at the core makes this fun to drink but there's more than enough going on here to shine with savory foods like hamburger, pork, or lamb.

Pettrone Sangiovese 2012 Product #30110 (In Stock)
Pettrone Sangiovese 2012 Pettrone Sangiovese 2012

Kati Pettrone and Skip Bailey Lovin partner with Kati’s East Coast brothers, Mark and McLean's own Frank Pettrone to bring us this homage to the wine their Italian parents drank.  A richer, riper, and more fun take on Chianti's main red grape, this shows soft cherry and raspberry fruit with hints of cracked epper and olive.  Hefty enough for big roasts or stews but not at all harsh or hard.

Dievole Chianti Classico 2013 Product #30944 (In Stock)
Dievole Chianti  Classico 2013 Dievole Chianti  Classico 2013

A old-time great that fell into mass-production blandness roars back into greatness with this pure, silky, Chianti. Smooth, red fruited, and classy.

"Dievole's 2013 Chianti Classico is super-impressive. A blast of dark cherries, smoke, leather, tobacco and dark spices hit the palate as this large-scaled, virile Chianti Classico. Dark and brooding in style, the 2013 boasts magnificent depth in a large-scaled Chianti Classico endowed with tremendous depth. Look for the Dievole Chianti Classico to be one of the sleepers of the vintage."  Vinous (Galloni) 91+ points

"Welcome back! I say this to the ultimate come-back kid: Dievole in Vagliagli near Castellina-in-Chianti. The 2013 Chianti Classico does a great job of underlining the natural characteristics of Sangiovese. If a #nofilter hashtag could be applied as a sensorial characteristic in wine writing, it is a fitting descriptor to use in the case of this wine. It offers a clean view of cherry, wild berry, pressed flower and balsam herb. This is a wine of beautiful purity that offers a non-interventionist's approach."Wine Advocate 91 points

Organic Grapes.  About as much fun to drink as Chianti gets!  Bright red cherry fruit aromas get accents of violets, licorice, and a hint of spice. The cherry/strawberry fruit is sweet and savory on the palate with plenty of juicy acidity and supple, fine, tannins that add just the right amount of support and keep it fresh and focused across the long finish.  A great everyday pizza, pasta, or even sipping Chianti and ready to drink now.

Voliero Rosso Di Montalcino 2014 Product #30552 (In Stock)
Voliero Rosso Di  Montalcino 2014 Voliero Rosso Di  Montalcino 2014

A delightful contrast to the more serious, brooding Brunello from Voliero, the 2014 Rosso is fresh, pure and clean - unadulturated, un-fussed-with Sangiovese. It opens with aromas of fresh cherries, cranberries, and a bit of baking spice. While this wine does see 10 months of aging in large Slavonian and French oak casks, the wood adds just a touch of pleasing spiciness, and mainly serves as a way to soften and open the wine.

On the palate, it’s silky and light on its feet, and the tannins have a very satisfying, supple texture. Flavors of fresh cherries, just-ripe strawberries, and a hint of cranberry make this wine mouthwatering and food friendly, but you could also chill the bottle down just a bit and have a few sips while you’re cooking or before dinner with no trouble at all. While the description of Rosso di Montalcino as a ‘Baby Brunello’ is usually an apt one, it’s limiting to think of this style of wine as a lesser version of Brunello. It has its own perfect situation, usually one where a richer, oak-aged wine would be overwhelming. Try it with roast chicken, grilled pork, or even a simple vegetable and pasta dish.

Castello Dei Rampolla Chianti Classico 2013 Product #30219 (In Stock)
Castello Dei Rampolla Chianti Classico 2013 Castello Dei Rampolla Chianti Classico 2013

Even more than the breathtaking 2010 we featured a few years ago, this is simply the best young Chianti Classico I’ve ever tasted.  The ripe blackberry, cherry and raspberry fruit, fresh cut floral, and sweet/savory licorice aromas plus a super silky texture make it hard to resist now.  By 2018, it will be even more complex and seductive and will keep on improving through 2028 and beyond.

"Rampolla's 2013 Chianti Classico is dark, sensual and inviting. Sweet red cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and tobacco flesh out in a pliant Chianti Classico that offers both plenty of fruit and structure. Ideally, readers should cellar the 2013 for at least another year to allow the full breadth of flavors and textures to open up. The style is rich, intense and powerful to the core. In other words; classic Rampolla."  Vinous (Galloni) 91 points

"Maurizia Di Napoli's 2013 Chianti Classico was released in May (much earlier than usual) to make up for shortages of the 2012 vintage. This is a beautiful expression of Sangiovese with fine tannins and tight consistency. The wine shows the elegance and the sharp focus that is the hallmark of this stunning property in Panzano-in-Chianti. The wine is 90% Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot." Wine Advocate 92 points

"A rich core of cherry, black currant and violet sits apart from the granular tannins in this sinewy red. Has everything in the right proportions, so give this a year or so to integrate more fully. Best from 2018 through 2024. 2,916 cases made.Wine Spectator 93 points
