TASTING NOTES

"This awe-inspiring Chianti Classico shows blueberries, blackberries, red plums, melted chocolate, hazelnuts, violets, elderberries, heather, rose stems, ash and charcoal. Full body and a ripe yet ultra-polished sheen of tannins, which encase wonderfully rich and fresh fruit. Deep and ever so long on the finish. The silkiness is mind-boggling. Will this prove to be the greatest Chianti Classico ever made? Drink or hold." JamesSuckling.com

"This wine is one of the true protagonists of the 2015 vintage. The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto Bellavista offers an unreal level of intensity and depth with profound darkness and perfectly integrated tannins versus acidity. This wine was not produced in 2014. This vintage only saw 4,200 bottles made. The wine pours forth with rich fruit that is tightly woven within the wine's generous texture. Spice, smoke and tobacco appear as brief afterthoughts. Despite the beauty of the bouquet, this wine is ultimately all about the finesse and the elegance of its mouthfeel and that subtle game it plays alternating between brawn and grace. Vigneto Bellavista is bellissimo." Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #239

"The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto Bellavista plays very true to type, with expressive aromatic top notes from the Malvasia Nera that gives the wine its distinctive savory/floral profile. Sage lavender, black pepper, menthol and juniper berry all grow in the glass. Towering and statuesque in its presence, the 2015 is going to need a number of years to be at its best." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Offers vibrant cherry and strawberry flavors out front, supported by earth, iron and tobacco notes. Chalky tannins underline all the elements and the finish extends with a whisper of fruit, mineral and tobacco. Best from 2021 through 2033. 25 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"Very intense, almost charred nose. Masses of acid and tannins – and fruit – but the whole is still embryonic. This desperately needs food! But at the right temperature (not too warm) a certain silky, peppery quality emerges. Prune flavours but no dried-grape characters. There is real energy in this tightly coiled spring of a wine that tastes like an essence of Tuscany." JancisRobinson.com
