Fiore Chianti DOCG Fiore Nero 2012 Product #28382 (In Stock)
Fiore Chianti DOCG Fiore Nero 2012 Fiore Chianti DOCG Fiore Nero 2012

This is the second wine we've featured from Italy's Alessandro Fiore and, like the way over-achieving Super-Tuscan Rosso, it's a lot of wine for the money.  We could give you all kind of descriptive prose about the 2012 Fiore Nero Chianti DOCG - but it all boils down to: "This smells and tastes like Chianti!"  Specifically, a really nice, old-school, Chianti with great fruit and a soft, supple, finish.  Classic Chianti aromas of earthy black cherry and raspberry lead to plenty of dark berry fruit with some nice floral and licorice accents. The black fruit keeps on pumping across the fine tannins at the end as a hint of fresh leather emerges and juicy acids make your mouth water.

In short, it's a very fine Spaghetti House Chianti full of clean, modern, fruit and plenty of old-school fun. Grab a case, bake up a big dish of lasagna, and have a party!

Always solid, this is the best vintage yet for this Chianti producer located up near Florence.  It's a round, black-fruited, wine loaded with soft black cherry and plum flavors and just the right touch of earthy spice.  Soft and round from beginning to end, this is a great wine for burgers or just to sip on its own. A nice peek at the amazing quality from Chianti in 2010!

Borgo Scopeto Chianti Classico 2010 Product #28787 (In Stock)
Borgo Scopeto Chianti Classico 2010 Borgo Scopeto Chianti Classico 2010

Crazy value in top-notch Chianti to drink or cellar. The oak aging has given this a smooth, rich, texture without adding excessive wood flavors.  Easy to drink or enjoy at table.

"This is vibrant and energetic, with a base of fine-grained tannins lifting the cherry, currant, rhubarb and tobacco flavors. Taut and almost racy on the long finish. Best from 2015 through 2024."Wine Spectator 92 points

Tenuta Le Calcinaie Chianti Colli Senesi 2012 Product #28729 (In Stock)
Tenuta Le Calcinaie Chianti Colli Senesi 2012 Tenuta Le Calcinaie Chianti Colli Senesi 2012

Organic Grapes.  Here's a gutsy, ripe, blend of Sangiovese with just a tiny bit of Canaiolo Nero) that delivers romas and flavors of black cherry fruit with accents of violets, licorice, and a hint of spice. There's just the right amount of Chianti heft and tannic power on the finish, but a nice burst of tangy cherry acidity keeps the dark fruit and floral flavors fresh and focused across the long finish.  A great steak Chianti and ready to drink now.

Il Molino Chianti Classico 2009 Product #27658 (In Stock)
Il Molino Chianti Classico 2009 Il Molino Chianti Classico 2009

The “Il Molino de Grace” name refers to a 19th Century windmill on the Grace property and suggests how Frank and Tim Grace seek to keep their wines firmly anchored in Tuscan tradition.  Their 2009 Chianti Classico embraces Sangiovese’s lighter, prettier, style of fruit and concentration over the darker, more oak-influenced, styles more common today.  I love the bright and cheerful fruit and hints of violet here, but there’s plenty of stuffing and intensity, too.

“Violet, black currant, black cherry, cedar and black tea flavors hold court in this sleek, supple red, with a lingering spicy aftertaste. Drink now through 2020.”Wine Spectator 90 points

“The Il Molino di Grace Chianti Classico is 100% Sangiovese and offers pleasant aromas of dried cherries and earth. It is soft and velvet smooth with good density of sweet red fruit on the palate. Aged for 11 months in stainless steel, French barriques and tonneaux, it shows good acidity and overall structure with a long finish.”i-Wine Review 90 points

Castello Dei Rampolla Chianti Classico 2011 Product #28167 (In Stock)
Castello Dei Rampolla Chianti Classico 2011 Castello Dei Rampolla Chianti Classico 2011

With Fontodi, Felsina, and Querciabella, this is always one of Chianti's best.  There's a silky juiciness to the wine that makes it hard to resist right now, but it's likely to peak in 2015 and last through 2021.  Outstanding value in elite-level Chianti.

"The 2011 Chianti Classico is a great introduction to the wines of Rampolla. Much more structured than most wines of the year, the 2011 nevertheless has plenty of radiance and voluptuousness in its dark, resonant fruit. Sweet floral and deeply pitched spice notes add lift on the beautiful, delineated finish. This is a fairly approachable vintage for the Chianti Classico, but another year or two in bottle should help the tannins soften a touch."  Antonio Galloni 91 points

Carpineta Fontalpino Chianti Classico 2011 Carpineta Fontalpino Chianti Classico 2011

Just a terrific bottle of Chianti that’s ready to enjoy now with rich foods – think Tuscan steak! – or to improve for 8+ years in the cellar.  A dark fruited, rich, wine with loads of ripe, sweet, fruit on the long finish.  A gem.

"An elegant profile complements the cherry, raspberry, spice and wild herb flavors in this tightly wound red. Balanced, needing some time to knit."Wine Spectator 90 points
