"A dense and rich red with chocolate and leather. Hints of chestnuts. Medium to full body, dense fruit for the vintage. Excellent. Drink now."~J.S.
Wine Advocate 90+
"Among the many new releases I tasted from this vintage, this wine offers an extremely pure and genuine expression of Sangiovese. The 2014 Chianti Classico shows wild and unpredictable aromas of wild berry, white almond and freshly milled peppercorn. There are subtle nuances of blue flower and moist earth as well. But this wine really excels when it comes to showing the tangy and spicy side of Sangiovese. The mouthfeel is thin and crisp, but this wine also shows introspective grace and inner elegance. The tannins are sweet and firm."
Wine Spectator 90
“A vivid, acidity-driven red, with accents of blood orange augmenting cherry, almond, licorice and earth flavors. Well-balanced, this lingers with echoes of almond and earth. Drink now through 2020. 2,916 cases made.” -Bruce Sanderson
Vinous Media 88
"The 2014 Chianti Classico is an attractive, mid-weight wine that reflects the personality and challenges of the vintage. Sweet floral and mid-weight, the 2014 is a good wine to drink now and over the next few years, while the raspberry, cherry pit and floral notes retain their brightness."~A.G.
