Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico Riserva 2015
No. 3 of the 2018 Top 100
“Though saturated with black currant and blackberry fruit and backed by opaque tannins, this red is pure and balanced. Thyme, iron, leather and tar notes give this complexity, while the finish goes into overtime. Best from 2023 through 2040.”

Under the garnet colour, the nose is intense and complex. Enjoy this dry, full-bodied and fruity red featuring lively acidity. On the palate, it showcases fleshy tannins and a broad mouthfeel that leads into a long finish.
