Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico Riserva 2019
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Castello di Volpaia|
A bright yet firmly structured Chianti Classico, with iron, leather, almond and floral accents surrounding a core of cherry fruit. Sleek and intense, with a lingering finish echoing cherry, red berry and mineral notes. Best from 2024 through 2040. 4,500 cases imported.
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 touch a rustic.
