Smooth, with black cherry, plum, leather and tobacco flavors intertwining, this red is complex and powerful. The beefy structure reveals itself as this plays out on the long finish. Best from 2022 through 2035. 2,700 cases made, 1,100 cases imported.

An opulent red, showing strawberries, plums and white stones on the nose. Medium to full body, dusty tannins and a pure, clean finish. Drink now or hold.

The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Calidonia is a big, strapping wine. Dark red and purplish fruit, lavender, mint, tobacco and spice are backed by imposing, powerful tannins that will benefit from bottle age.
