palate pliancy in its floral red fruit along with soft, silky tannins that frame the finish. Tar, licorice and smoke are nicely layered into the finish. The Badia a Passignano is 100% Sangiovese. This vineyard ripened on the late side in 2007, giving the wine much of its textural finesse. With air, the wine is absolutely singing today. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2017.

The winery is named after a 19th century historic windmill located on the property near the cantina. When Frank Grace first purchased the property in 1995, there was no winery: all Read More...
the grapes were sold to local producers. Using the site of a ruined barn, Grace, together with winery manager Gerhard Hirmer, designed and built a state of the art winery. The winery opened its doors in 1999 and today, all of our wines are estate produced and bottled using organic materials and sustainable practices in both the vineyard and cantina. 100% Sangiovese Intense ruby red hints of small red fruits, cherry jam, white pepper well structured and complex, soft and round tannins, and a long lasting finish.

the palate in this fleshy, generous Chianti Classico. The radiance of the fruit is suggestive of a warm year, but the tannic profile, medium body and overall structure is more similar to that of a colder vintage. In 2009 Ama did not bottle their single vineyard selections; all of the best fruit went into the Castello di Ama bottling. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.

leather and herbs. The 2009 impresses for its mid-palate density and sheer power. This is a great showing. The 2009 can be enjoyed today, but it is rather muscular, and is probably best suited for aging a few years. This is a terrific showing. A recent bottle of the 1995 was stunning in its beauty. The Riserva is 100% Sangiovese aged in a combination of casks and smaller French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029"

suave and deep, with insidious intensity to the multilayered flavors of blueberry, tobacco leaf and loam. Wonderfully silky and ripe red cherry and spice flavors. The 2009 vintage doesn't get any better than this. An outstanding wine, and everything a Chianti ought to be."

JAMES SUCKLING 93 POINTS - "A solid wine with a deep platform of dried berries and spices. Full and rich with firm tannins and a chocolate, berry and hazelnut aftertaste. Impressive. This is a longtime favorite. Drink or hold."

For a long time Selvapiana was a summer residence for the Florentine bishops. It then belonged to a series of rich Florentine merchant families including the Scalandroni. Purchased in 1827 by Michele Giuntini Selvapiana, the estate now covers an area of 240 hectares, of which 45 are devoted to vineyards and 31 to olives. Five generations of the Giuntini family have now lived on the estate.

The rigor and care devoted to producing this wine make Bucerchiale (a 100% Sangiovese made for the first time in 1979) one of the finest wines in the Rufina area. Following malolactic fermentation, it is matured in barriques and medium-sized sessile oak casks. It is aged in wood for 15 months and then blended together in steel tanks prior to bottling.

We really got into the Castello di Meleto estate last year. The 2005 Release of Meleto’s “Vigna Casi” Riserva was in a beautiful place at seven years of age—impeccable quality at a Read More...
very fair price. The newly arrived 2006 Riserva “Vigna Casi” is similarly showing a seductive mix of succulent cherry fruit and the aromatic depth of a beautifully aged wine. Even better, the estate’s 2009 Normale Chianti Classico arrived this year showing greater depth of fruit, brightness, and balance—and it was about 20% less than the 2008 vintage. Castello di Meleto is one of those princely estates you can only imagine in Tuscany (a 900 year old castle, 2,500 acres of land with only the best fraction planted to grapes, romance galore!), but the next level of quality is coming from modern viticultural improvements. Meleto’s estate in Gaiole is higher in altitude than most sites in the Chianti Classico zone—brightness and perfume are not a problem for the region, but sometimes ripeness is. Castello di Meleto’s estate has undergone a 10 year revision—sticking to the rockiest sites and training the vines closer to those heat reflecting stones. The result is a beautiful mix of purity and bright red fruit with a more harmonious and silky texture.

Hankering for a Chianti? The 2009 from Fèlsina is a beautiful mouthful, everything you want in a Chianti Classico — an explosion of cherries with mellow tannins and a chiseled structure. Lovely finish too. Delicious drinking from a consistently excellent producer. "

Fontodi 2010 Chianti Classico is 93 points from Galloni. This is the highest rated ever straight Chianti Classico. This is the entry level wine that Read More...
Fontodi makes, but this wine is by no means entry in quality and flavor. The wine is mode from 100% Sangiovese, and aged in new French barriques for 12 months. This wine is a steal for only a fraction of the cost of its big brothers the Fontodi Chianti Riserva Sorbo, and Fontodi Flaccianello.

The 2010 vintage in the Chianti Classico sub zone is one for the history books. The vintage was a long and cool growing season, which allowed the grapes to slowly develop and mature without losing balance. The rain that fell was almost always followed by a few weeks of sunny weather. This meant that the ground dried up, so the grapes wouldn't be diluted or have to worry about rot and mold. What this means for the grapes in the Chianti Classico zone is this. The wines developed amazing aromatics that liken to the 2004 vintage, have acid and structure (grape tannins) like 2006 vintage, with a slight bit a fruit like the 2007 vintage. For all people that love the classical vintages and styles, this is your vintage. However if you just love great wines to pop and drink this is also the vintage for you.
