Dusty cellar nose Medium bodied and full of life! Some new leather, fig, hazelnut, strong and fit. Mint and cherry zinger finish this long, lingering, finish.

Another stunner from 2015. I love this producer and the purity of its style. A reference point wine with drop dead gorgeous and slightly rustic fall aromas with a hint of bergamot and leather. Flavors of sour cherry, pomegranate, orange peel and warm spices framed by sinewy tannins and ripping acidity.

Castell'in Villa's 2015 Chianti Classico is a gorgeous wine that will delight readers who enjoy the Chianti Classicos of this reference-point estate in Castelnuovo Berardenga. Crushed flowers, mint, licorice, dried herbs, cedar and tobacco give the 2015 lovely aromatic complexity. The 2015 is perhaps a bit more open than young wines tend to be here, but then again, 2015 is a warm vintage that generally yielded accessible Chianti Classicos. All that means is that the 2015 can be enjoyed with less cellaring than is the norm here. As it so often is, the Castell'in Villa Chianti Classico is a wine of real pedigree and distinction.

It’s time for you to wrap your purple toga around you and get serious.... this is one of the best classic Chiantis. Inviting medium red body with aromas of sour cherry, leather,. Mild tannins, and a long, complex finish. This Chianti Classico is a excellent medium-weight every day table wine.;

If you enjoy Chianti or you are in need of an Italian fix...uncork this wine and enjoy your transition. Dark red with clear edges, medium body, tannic follow-up with hints of dark plum and fig. I am too impatient to describe why I like this wine...Nono would have enjoyed this wine but would prefer his own....close to the heart....excellent....chao! Good enough for three - five more years.

The OG of CC! One of the best I’ve had. Just a baby but drinking really well, especially with some dry rub ribs. Acidity for days but not overpowering.
