Ruby red tending toward garnet. Rich, intense and complex with aromas of black cherry and spice. Full bodied with rich red berry fruit flavors matched with a backbone of tannin. Open in advance and allow to breathe. Decanting is preferable. An exceptional compliment to red meats, roasts and game.

Aromas of plums, cherries and hints of green olives. White truffles and deep earth, too. Full-bodied, so layered and beautiful with a fabulous texture and ripe tannins. It is so pure and minimalist in the end, showing the effect of traditional, hands-off winemaking. Don't miss this. Decant before serving. One for the cellar. Drink or hold.

Tight and tannic for now, featuring cherry, black currant, leather, iron, juniper and tar flavors. Firmly structured, meaty and balanced on the tannic side, with a lingering finish. Best from 2021 through 2035.

The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva is bold, ample and powerful, with a real sense of breadth in this vintage. The tannins need time to soften, as the wine is a bit burly at this stage. This is another stellar release for a wine that routinely overachieves its peer group and price. Dense and packed, with tremendous structure, the 2015 has a lot to say. But readers will have to be patient, as it is very clearly early days for this wine.
