Thanks to our friends over at Wein Plus for awarding high scores to our Gran Selezione and Riserva, both 2015, in their round up review of of Chianti Classico this year – “BEST of Chianti Classico 2019 and the high capacity of producers”.
We received 93pts for Chianti Classico ‘Vigna Vecchie’ Gran Selezione 2015, ranked as the highest scoring Gran Selezione of the 2015 vintage, and 92pts for our Chianti Classico Riserva 2015, also the highest scoring in its category!
Finesse, depth and complexity in the 2015 vintage
The wines of the praised but also very hot 2015 season are a whole other thing, which presented higher alcoholic values on average, which at one time in Chianti Classico were once an absolute exception. This, at times, was already too much for the vintage wines, which raised the fear that the Reservas and the Grand Selezioni could be even more opulent. But with good specimens – and there are many of them in 2015 – the opposite of case is more often found: they are distinguished from the basic wines by the greater finesse, depth and complexity.
