Critical Acclaim

VN89 Vinous Oct 2016

"Rocca di Castagnoli’s 2014 Chianti Classico is soft, open-knit and gracious, all of which give it considerable near-term appeal. Sweet red cherry, plum, mint, tobacco and rose petals grace the attractive finish. The 2014 has lovely density to match its mid-weight, understated personality. Even so, the finish is tightly wound. Another year or two in bottle will work wonders." (89 pts.)

Tuscany

There are few regions as picturesque as Italy's Tuscany. And there are few regions that produce finer wines, either. Tuscany is home to legendary wine regions Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, among others, where the red wine grape Sangiovese is king. It's also home to "Super Tuscans," a category of Tuscan wines that don't officially fall within the Italian wine classification system.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
