17/20, Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com “Aged in French barriques for 18 months. 170,000 bottles produced. Pure and fresh with really admirable purity. Gorgeous and very much of this place. Long with fine tannins. Bravissimo!’
“I loved this 2015, which seems to speak so eloquently of the region and the charms of the Sangiovese grape. Its purity that is so magnificent, plus its balance of ripe but extremely fresh fruit and that tanginess that characterises a fine Chianti Classico. With particularly fine tannins, it lasts and lasts. Its 14% alcohol is not obvious. I gave it 17 points out of 20 and would happily drink it any time over the next five years – preferably with food.

“Wines of the Week” “Deliciously succulent with spicy, sweet dark cherry and wild hedgerow fruit but just a little savoury too. Beautifully balanced and harmonious. Both smooth and tangy and finishes so fresh.”
