- Utterly delicious, age-worthy Chianti Classico
- 2015 - warm vintage
- Ripe, fleshy Sangiovese but with lovely freshness
This wine, from the warm 2015 vintage in Tuscany, really blew us away with its outstanding quality. In a time when ultra premium wine is beyond the reach of many it is nice to know that excellent quality, age-worthy wines are still available for the savvy buyer. Sourced from vineyards around the village of Ruffoli in the famous commune of Greve in Chianti, this unwooded Sangiovese is hedonism bottled. Exotic, lifted aromas precede a deeply concentrated, juicy palate punctuated by perfectly-pitched acidity and fine, ribbon-like tannins. So enjoyable and refreshing. Drink this beauty now or over the next 10 to 12 years, if you can keep your hands of them for that long!
The 2015 Chianti Classico is superb. Bright, focused and wonderfully lifted, it offers tons of Sangiovese personality. On the palate, the 2015 is pliant, silky and expressive, with exceptional balance and tons of class. Ageing in cement allows the purity of the fruit to come through beautifully.
