Owner/winegrower Giovanni d'Orsi made remarkably fine Chianti Classico in the tricky 2013 and 2014 vintages.  But in the fine 2015 harvest – the best in Chianti since 2011 – he simply crushed it.  Organic Sangiovese (90%) and Merlot (10%) grapes are hand harvested and double sorted, fermented cool and aged gently for 12 months in 500 liter French oak casks.  It’s bold and deeply flavored for sure, but also amazingly silky and pure for all the ripeness.  Delicious already and built to improve for years.

"The 2015 Chianti Classico is a bold, juicy wine. Black cherry, lavender and expressive spice provide much of its exotic, alluring personality. Lush and racy, but with vibrant fruit and tons of Sangiovese structure, the 2015 is a winner."  Vinous (Galloni) 92 points

"A beauty, this silky red is packed with dark cherry, leather, iron and earth aromas and flavors. Harmonious and long, with a well-integrated structure and a mineral-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2029. 2,500 cases made. Smart Buy" Wine Spectator 94 points
