Barone Ricasoli Chianti Classico Roncicone Gran Selezione 2015

Beginning to develop some leather and woodsy aromas and flavors, this supple red also evokes fresh cherry, plum, iron and tar flavors. Big and brooding by the time it plays out on the lengthy finish, this stays bright and balanced overall. Best from 2022 through 2040. 3,720 cases made, 675 cases imported.
