CASTELLO DI VERRAZZANO

Chianti Classico Riserva 2015

$40

A powerful, fleshy red, this is permeated by black cherry, blackberry, graphite and smoke aromas and flavors. Stays concentrated and balanced, yet will require time for all the components to align. Just a touch dry on the finish. Sangiovese and Canaiolo. Best from 2022 through 2043. 6,666 cases made, 1,666 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson
