9   CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA
Castellare di Castellina

Vinous.com/Antonio Galloni - The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is beguiling and wonderfully nuanced. Lavender, mint, sage, tobacco, spice, leather and dark red/bluish fruits shape the wine with tons of complexity as well as character. This mid-weight, super-classic Riserva captures the Castellare style beautifully. Most importantly, the 2016 offers tremendous value. In fact, as seen through lens of quality for the money, the Riserva is THE wine to buy in this range.

30 75cl BRUNELLO di MONTALCINO
Il Poggione

Vinous.com/Eric Guido -
Il Poggione 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers up a dark, earthy, almost animal-like expression, showing black soil and undergrowth, giving way to crushed black cherry, dusty spice, and dried florals which lift the experience. On the palate, soft, fleshy textures usher in fresh cherry and strawberry, as brisk acids add energy, with savoury herbs and minerals saturating, as the 2015 Il Poggione’s fruit nearly masks its structural core. The finish is long yet fresh, with classic, fine tannins, dried red fruits and pretty inner floral tones lingering throughout this perfectly balanced expression. The 2015 s pure class and built for the cellar.

CHIANTI CLASSICO
Querciabella

Antonio Galloni -
 The 2015 Chianti Classico, 100% Sangiovese, is all class. The flavours are vibrant and lively, with plenty of bright red cherry and strawberry character. This is an especially understated, finessed wine for the year. The Chianti Classico is a blend of approximately 40% Greve, 40% Gaiole and 20% Radda fruit. All the elements come together beautifully.
