2019 Chianti Classico Riserva, Castello di Volpaia, Tuscany

Bramble fruits are present here, intertwined with dried flower, fresh figs and licorice spice. Coffee and leather notes as well as rosemary give this wine added breadth. The acidity is energetic and juicy and the tannins are gripping.

Tasting notes

The 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva is a dark, brooding wine. Black cherry, leather, licorice, incense, spice and tobacco give the 2019 its decidedly somber, inward personality. There’s good depth and yet the 2019 is marked by somewhat angular contours that leave it feeling a little rustic.
