JAMES SUCKLING 91 POINTS - "A wine with pretty milk chocolate and berry character and hints of mint. Full body, with fine tannins and a delicately Read More...
fruit aftertaste. A little austere now. Better in 2015."

From the estate: "Sangiovese and a small percentage of complementary varieties, from the Signora Chiara and Sodo delle Disgrazie vineyards on the Mocenni estate, near Vagliagli. An ample and complex bouquet, with distinct notes of spice and of fresh fruit. Soft, elegant and well-structured. Maintains the freshness typical both of its zone of production and of its grape variety."

WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS - "This is vibrant and energetic, with a base of fine-grained tannins lifting the cherry, currant, rhubarb and tobacco flavors. Read More...
Taut and almost racy on the long finish. Best from 2015 through 2024. 2,200 cases imported."

We love versatility in wine and constantly seek one that can wear many hats, complement many meals and please a plethora of palates while remaining true to its core (varietal, terroir) self. This Borgo Scopeto is right in our sweet spot.

The nose is much more complex than the reasonable bottle price might suggest: dark spices, violets, ripe strawberry, cedar, tobacco, creosote, a touch of mint-- brilliant. The palate starts with sweet berries, mixed reds and strawberries, leading to a path of briar and bramble. Dark baking spices add to the mid-palate as a wave of bright acidity keeps it uplifted throughout culminating in a lengthy, tasty finish. Great summer-into-fall red. Buoyant with acidity, loaded with awesome scents and tastes, fully realized wine. Enjoy it with solid summer fare, from pizzas and pastas to ossobuco.

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.

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.

ANTONIO GALLONI 92 POINTS - " The 2011 Chianti Classico is easily one of the wines of the vintage. Read More...
A dark, juicy Chianti, the 2011 explodes in all directions with generous, totally inviting fruit. The style is big, rich and voluptuous, but all the elements are in the right place. Readers who find the style of the vintage too exuberant will want to cellar the 2011 for a few years, or, even better, head straight for the 2010. "

WINE SPECTATOR 90 POINTS - "A broad, ripe version, offering cherry, plum, violet and tobacco notes. Pure and vivid, with bright fruit and a lingering, peppery finish. Good length. Best from 2015 through 2024. 3,000 cases made."
