2015 Chianti Classico
This is all about finesse and a pure expression of sangiovese. Red berry fruit, red licorice and sweet spice all come out as it opens. Ethereal on the palate it has a interesting, wild sangiovese edge that comes through.
`Castell`in Villa`s 2014 Chianti Classico is a gorgeous wine that will thrill readers with classically-leaning palates. Bright red cherry fruit, sweet tobacco, herb and licorice are some of the many nuances that develop in the glass. More than anything else, the 2014 stands out for its energy and finely sculpted personality. I would give it a few years in bottle to come together a bit more fully.` 92 points, Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, Feb 2019
