Many thanks again to Falstaff who have published their reviews and certificates for our ‘Vigna Vecchia’ Gran Selezione and Riserva 2015, which received 93 and 92 points respectively.
Our 2016 vintage is maturing nicely, and we look forward to sharing the bottlings with the team at Falstaff as another insight into the intriguing influence that the vintage has on our wines!
Chianti Classico ‘Vigna Vecchia’ Gran Selezione 2015
Glossy ruby with a slight shimmer of garnet. Inviting nose with lots of fresh fruit, then fine resinous notes, some cedar wood. Polished and velvety in the beginning, opens with elegance, decided finish.
Chianti Classico Riserva 2015
Rich, dark ruby with a light garnet edge. Captivating and intense nose, full of dark olive paste, lots of cherry, a little raspberry. Juicy and soft on the palate, delicate cherry, but then shows (still) rather rough tannins.
