Istine Vigna Cavarchione Chianti Classico 2015

Wine Enthusiast: 92 pts

Aromas of ripe dark-skinned berry, new leather, culinary spice and a whiff of pressed violet lift out of the glass. Chewy and savory, the medium-bodied palate doles out raspberry compote, ripe Marasca cherry, cinnamon and star anise. Polished tannins provide smooth support.

 James Suckling: 93 pts

The nose here shows holly and raspberries and then riper, darker aromas of blueberry cake, cinnamon and dried spices. The palate is very focused and dialed-in with tangy acidity and firm tannins. A delightfully fresh, mineral finish. Drink now.
