“The 2014 Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva is a dark and thickly concentrated expression in terms of appearance. Its texture is soft and luscious. The blend is 90% Sangiovese with smaller parts Canaiolo and Colorino. Like many other wines from this vintage, the mouthfeel is leaner and more compact than usual.” Wine Avocate - ParkerDiscover
The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia does not reveal itself immediately or in any obvious way. Instead, it doses out its intensity in careful measurements. The whole performance is seductive to say the least. That slow momentum leads to dark cherry with spice, grilled herb, wet earth and dried rose. Felsina's Riserva Rancia is a very elegant wine, both on the nose and in the mouth.Discover
"The 2015 Castello di Volpaia 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." Wine Avocate - ParkerDiscover

"Barone Ricasoli's flagship wine, the 2010 Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio flaunts its pedigree and beauty right from the start. The bouquet is balanced and intense with a charming mixture of bright berry fruit and oak-driven tones of spice and tobacco. The fabric of the wine is firm, fresh and perfectly streamlined. Menthol highlights and grilled herbs are fitting endnotes. The best part is that this wine never strays far from tradition. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025." Wine Advocate - ParkerDiscover
