"This juicy red has grip, setting the backdrop for pure cherry, blueberry, earth, iron and tobacco flavors. Though light-weight, this should develop over the next three to five years. Best from 2019 through 2024. 5,000 cases imported.–BS " (WS)

"The 2015 Chianti Classico is an easy and accessible red wine with good quality fruit. Sangiovese in this harvest delivers layers of plumpness and ripeness and you definitely get both those things here. The Tuscan grape is blended with 10% Merlot. That generous delivery translates to the mouthfeel where the wine offers sweet berry flavors and a piquant touch of wild spice. Some 120,000 bottles were produced." (WA)

"Volpaia's 2015 Chianti Classico is a very pretty, expressive wine with lovely textural depth and terrific balance. The raciness of the year comes through in the supple, fleshy fruit and inviting personality. Ripe dark and purplish stone fruit and spice notes meld together effortlessly. This is a stellar showing from Volpaia." (VM)

"A soft and velvety wine with chocolate, cedar and berry character. Medium to full body, velvety tannins and a fresh finish. Lively and delicious. Love the savory undertone to it. Drink now. " (JS)
