About

92

The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Vigna Casi renders a faithful interpretation of the Gaiole in Chianti subzone, where wines tend to show elegant but somewhat wild characteristics with prominent aromas of blue flowers & moist earth. You get plenty of aromatic intensity here, but this warm vintage has definitely added a sweet & succulent signature to this single-vineyard Riserva. Dark fruit, tobacco & leather add weight and substance to the mid-weight mouthfeel. The $24 retail price is what the wine sells for at the little shop in front of the estate. Some 25,000 bottles were produced.
