Chianti Classico 2015 & 2016 : In the Right Place at the Right Time


We are elated to receive high points and kind words from Antonio Galloni at Vinous. Vinous is a forward-thinking wine publication that marries Antonio’s honed wine expertise with the investigative adventurous souls of his team.


We received 92pts for our Chianti Classico 2015, and 94 pts for our Chianti Classico Riserva 2015 which was featured as one of Vinous’ ‘Don’t miss wines’ in Antonio’s article ‘Chianti Classico 2015 & 2016 : In the Right Place at the Right Time’ published on February 22nd 2019.

Head over to Vinous’ website to read the insider scoop on two fantastic vintages full of challenges, blessings and a whole lot of heart.


Galloni on Vecchie Terre di Montefili :

“I was deeply impressed with the two wines I tasted from Vecchie Terre di Montefili. The 2015s, the first wines made by the new team headed by restaurateur Nicola Marzovilla, are hugely promising. The estate had no other wines to present at the time of my tastings (July 2018), but things seem to be very much on track at Vecchie Terre di Montefili, one of the most fascinating estates in all of Tuscany”


We thank Antonio and the team at Vinous for joining us for the love of Sangiovese, and look forward to sharing our Gran Selezione, Anfiteatro and Bruno di Rocca 2015 with you. They are ready whenever you are!


Chianti Classico Riserva 2015

“The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva takes all the signatures of this hillside site and distills them to their purest essence. Powerful and wild, the 2015 has a lot to offer once it settles down a bit more in bottle. Spice, lavender and floral notes provide a lovely counter to the dense fruit in this superexpressive Riserva.”

Chianti Classico 2015

“The 2015 Chianti Classico is fabulous. Bright floral overtones make a bold opening statement. The 2015 is distinguished by its energy, finesse and sheer class. Sweet red cherry and rose petal are some of the nuances that develop over time, but more than anything the 2015 is a wine of pure and total class.”
