Riecine Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2013

Probably my #1 Chianti estate. So fragrant and elegant. Nose has pure macerated cherry fruit, deep gravelly minerality, dried flowers and sweet spices. Lean, pure, and flavorful, with clingy intense cherry and ridiculous inner mouth aromas. Medium-full body and crisp acids on the long finish. (Not sure if I’m being objective here because of the estate.)

Easy and sensitive with deep berry flavor. A satisfying bottle that punches way above its class from an obscure producer. Not to overstate it, but drinks like a well-matured Burgundy. Great find.

Musky mushroom-like nose at first. Opens up decently.

A classic expression of Sangiovese, spicy with bright red fruit and a very typical freshness that you can find in the best chianti wines. There is no room here for non-Italian grape varieties or an overdose of oak, and it is this classical approach that lends it all the more charm.

Finally tracked down both 2012 and 2013. The 13 is superior. Fruity and light enough but long legs are the show.
