Ca' Rozzeria

Barberino Val D'Elsa Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2019

This Chianti Classico doesn’t say it’s from a particular commune. Just a straight Chianti Classico. The modest nose features dark cherry, warm moist gravel, savory dark minerality. A fairly low-toned palate displays some dark cherry, but it’s mostly earthy (stony gravel) and savory flavors that prevail. Vibrant acids and some youthful but soft tannin seem to indicate that this will get better in a year or two, but it’s nice with dinner, if a bit vigorous, right now. Neither the cork nor the bottle say the winery that provided the wine for this Garagiste private label, but if you look up the winery number on the back and Google it, you come up with an Italian government document that says Casa Emma (a very good estate). — 11 days ago

Castello di Gabbiano

Gran Selezione Bellezza Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2016

Terrific now but could easily go several more years. Dense, precise fruit and earth in the nose. A little vanilla. Savory and focused in the mouth. Tannins and acids balanced for the future. — 2 days ago

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

The color and taste here is of a wine that is fairly advanced. It is tasty, but I’ll drink my remaining bottles relatively quickly. — 8 days ago

Big cherry, ripe and full, Tuscan leather. Bad vintage, great wine. Antinori knows what they’re doing. The age helps. — 7 days ago
