The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva is another compelling wine from Capraia. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, mocha, new leather, licorice, chocolate, spice and menthol infuse the 2016 with striking breadth, texture and creaminess. Powerful and also mysterious, with much still left to be said, Capraia's 2015 Riserva is simply fabulous. Don't miss it!

Wine Spectator 93
A broad yet supple red, this displays pure cherry flavors, with underbrush, earth and wild herb accents. Tips toward the astringent side in the balance, maintaining a beam of fruit on the finish.
by Wine Spectator, BS, 2019.

"Simply spectacular. A perfect expression of Chianti. Cherry, blackberry and perfect balance. A long and elegant finish. Agree with the experts, 93/94. Definitely will repurchase"

Missed the mark.

"Yes, but: The 2015 Tenuta di Capraia Chianti Classico Riserva has a lot going for it, but the winery missed the mark. It is out of balance with too much alcohol and tannic at the last. However,the greatness of the 2015 growing season comes through to save the wine. Keep for 2 to 3 years. When all is said, 4 out 5 apples. Apple Pie Bill"

Give it a try.

"For 20 it's worth the experience. Very dry, and the fruit component is lacking somewhat, but it's well made.So don't cellar this one, but drink it immediately, with food."
