Castello di Volpaia Coltassala, Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2015 Review

This wine expresses the soul of the modern Chianti region. It is deep, smooth, and thought provoking, showing layer after layer as it opens in your glass. The classic cherry and fresh turned soil aromas are present, with an added cranberry note for good measure. The mouthfeel has a prominent tannin structure that grips the edges of your palate, creating just the right amount of tension, allowing you to savor the depth of the wine. It’s worth the price, and worthy of a wine focused night.
