Wine SpectatorA rich core of cherry, black currant and violet sits apart from the granular tannins in this sinewy red. Has everything in the right proportions, so give this a year or so to integrate more fully. Best from 2018 through 2024. 2,916 cases made.

Wine AdvocateMaurizia Di Napoli's 2013 Chianti Classico was released in May (much earlier than usual) to make up for shortages of the 2012 vintage. This is a beautiful expression of Sangiovese with fine tannins and tight consistency. The wine shows the elegance and the sharp focus that is the hallmark of this stunning property in Panzano-in-Chianti. The wine is 90% Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
