Rocca delle Macie Chianti Classico Riserva 2015
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Rocca delle Macie|
Wine Spectator A dark version, featuring intense flavors of blackberry, black cherry, spice and tar up against a wall of tannins. All the elements are here, and it will be interesting to see how this plays out. Terrific length. Best from 2023 through 2040. 25,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva is packed tight with ripe fruit flavors and sunshine-driven aromas of ripe fruit and blackberry confit. Indeed, the wine is too ripe for my tastes, with a taste profile that stops just short of jammy and sweet. Dried cherry and blackcurrant are followed by tar, smoke and cured leather. I am suggesting a near-term drinking window as a result.
