B-21 Top Recommendation

We have always championed the Vino Nobile de Montalcino from Carpineto, but also watching closely the progressive strides being made with their Chianti Classico Riserva bottling. 2015 recalls Carpineto's groundbreaking history: 50 years ago and 50 miles southeast of Florence, near the quiet Etruscan commune of Chianciano. Giovanni C. Sacchet and Antonio M. Zaccheo had big plans for their 400 acres in Montepulciano, world-class Chianti foremost on their minds. A favorite of the 2015 vintage, the time has indeed come to introduce you to this other Carpineto; the Chianti Classico Riserva. This is reference standard Riserva, from an epic vintage, the finest yet produced at Carpineto.

Smells like a little Cabernet Sauvignon enhancing the Sangiovese in this black currant— and cherry-flavored red (but it's actually Canaiolo, with a bit of Mammolo and Colorino). Cedar, thyme, iron and sanguine notes round out the palate as this cruises to a lingering aftertaste. Shows excellent structure and balance. Best from 2020 through 2035. 17,800 cases made.
