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.

Fattoria La Lecciaia Rosso Di Montalcino 2014 Product #31785 (In Stock)
Fattoria La Lecciaia Rosso Di Montalcino 2014 Fattoria La Lecciaia Rosso Di Montalcino 2014

We don't know of a better deal in top-notch Rosso di Montalcino than this super value gem from La Lecciaia. Ripe, lush and creamy in texture, it delivers big aromas and flavors of spiced blackberry, dark cherries, tobacco and exotic floral notes.  There's good acidity on the long, lightly tanninc, finish with more ripe berry flavor lingering. Great with richer pasta dishes or anything hearty!

Caparzo Morellino Di Scansano Doga Della Clavule 2013 Product #31616 (In Stock)
Caparzo Morellino Di Scansano Doga Della Clavule 2013 Caparzo Morellino Di Scansano Doga Della Clavule 2013

Tuscany's coastal Morellino di Scansano region showcases Sangiovese blended with other grapes, usually Cabernet Sauvignon but here Alicante Bouschet.  The red-fleshed Alicante gives a darker cast to Sangiovese's brigh cherry fruit, with pretty hints of chocolate and walnut for complexity.  We love the sweetness of the fruit and the pasta/pizza friendly juicy finish with lightly chalky tannins.  Fun stuff!

Tenuta Di Capraia Chianti Classico 2014 Product #31672 (In Stock)
Tenuta Di Capraia Chianti Classico 2014 Tenuta Di Capraia Chianti Classico 2014

Just another 90 point release from this maker of fine, elegant, smooth, Chianti. 

"The 2014 Chianti Classico is delicate, focused and very nicely done. This is a distinctly translucent, high-acid style very much shaped by the cool growing season. Bright red cherry, mint and rose petal add an attractive aromatic top register throughout. Tenuta di Capraia turned out a lovely Chianti Classico in 2014. Best of all, pricing is exceedingly fair. I would prefer to drink this mid-weight Chianti Classico over the next few years."  Vinous (Galloni) 90 points

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

Montepulciano Sangiovese's chewy tannins are here but buffered by loads of rich fruit.  For hearty fare.

"A red with lots of ripe dark fruits, mushroom and leaf aromas and flavors. Full body, silky tannins and a tasty, savory finish. Plenty of flavor. Drink now."  James Suckling 92 points

"A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Mammolo, this offers classic varietal scents of underbrush, wild berry, blue flower and a whiff of leather. The firm palate delivers dried black cherry, raspberry, white pepper and anise framed in tightly packed but mature tannins. Drink through 2020."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Casaloste Chianti Classico 2013 Product #31648 (In Stock)
Casaloste Chianti Classico 2013 Casaloste Chianti Classico 2013

Casaloste’s vineyards lie in the heart of the “Conca d’Oro” – the “Golden Shell” where you’ll also find growers like Fontodi, Castello dei Rampolla, and other of Chianti’s greats.  Proprietor and winemaker Giovanni d'Orsi's Chianti Classico is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, hand harvested at optimal ripeness, fermented in tank and then aged 12 months in French oak cask and barrique.  It’s loaded with rich Chianti black cherry fruit with accents of violet, leather and chocolate.  There’s an earthy complexity here that takes this to a higher level than the average Classico and fantastic mid-palate energy.  You’ll love it now -2023 with mushroom pasta and grilled beef..

"Panzano (Greve in Chianti). Mid ruby with orange tinges. Ripe nose with a hint of dried fruit. A mouthful of fruit without being heavy, and grainy tannins adding interest on the finish."  JancisRobinson.com 16/20 points

"A beautiful Chianti Classico with precision and clarity. Full body, ripe and rich dark fruit character and a long and silky finish. Very fine and tight. Made from organically grown grapes. Drink or hold."  James Suckling 92 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.

"The 2013 Chianti Classico is a delicious wine with a very clean entry to the palate. The wine makes its mark thanks to shapely aromas of dark fruit, dried cherry and plum. The quality of the fruit is evident in the classic 2013 vintage. Clean acidity and bright berry flavors move towards the palate where they are both refreshing and invigorating. This is a great wine to pair with grilled meat or flatbread with smoked bacon or sausage."Wine Advocate 91 points
