"A focused beam of pure cherry fits the racy profile of this linear red. Accents of strawberry, tea and tobacco add depth. Drink now. 166,667 cases made. –BS " (WS)

"Castello di Volpaia has created the quintessential easy-drinking wine to pair with thick-crust pepperoni pizza and other similarly sumptuous take-out options. Fresh, tight and slightly nervous, the 2014 Chianti Classico mirrors the cool characteristics of the vintage with underlined acidity. The wine is light in appearance and shows prickly tones of wild berry and white cherry." (WA)

"Volpaia's 2014 Chianti Classico is fragrant, lifted and translucent in feel, with bright red stone fruit, tobacco, mint and anise nuances laced throughout. This is an especially gracious style, even for Volpaia. The precision of the fruit is at times distinctly Pinot Noir like, but the acidity is unmistakably that of Sangiovese." (VM)

"Unique aromas of dried raspberry, lemon rind and lilacs follow through to a medium body, fresh acidity and a clean, vivid finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now." (JS)

Tasting Notes:
The Chianti Classico has a vivid ruby color and a strong nose of fresh red fruit with hints of cherry. This is a well-structured wine with a fruity finish.
