Region: Tuscany

Tasting note:

“The 2019 Castello di Volpaia’s Chianti Classico Riserva very much resembles the 2017. It’s big and juicy, with layers of dark fruit, bramble and an extremely long finish. It balances vibrant acidity against beautiful tannin and may have a long life ahead of it. Drink now or lay down in your cellar. Drink until 2045
Ratings are still to come out from main sources, stay on the lookout for updates!” – Winemaker

“A bright yet firmly structured Chianti Classico, with iron, leather, almond and floral accents surrounding a core of cherry fruit. Sleek and intense, with a lingering finish echoing cherry, red berry and mineral notes. Best from 2024 through 2040.” – Wine Spectator 94pts

“Selected from eight vineyards with yields between 35 and 45hL/ha, Castello di Volpaia’s 2019 Riserva is aged in a combination of French and Slavonian oak barrels. It’s polished and detailed without sacrificing its tousled charms and grip. Heady cherry blossoms, warm flinty stone and grilled herbs greet the nose. On the palate, crunchy acidity and a clever blood orange lift lend brightness to black cherry and dark earth nuances. Sturdy enough for the next decade. Drinking Window: 2023 – 2032.” – Decanter 93pts
