SKU #1428369 92 points James Suckling

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chianti Classico is a very serious wine in its peer group. Rich, vivid and beautifully layered, the Chianti Classico will give readers a very good look at just how compelling 2016 is as a vintage. Sweet red cherry, tobacco and menthol notes open up in the glass, but more than anything else, Rocca di Montegrossi's Chianti Classico is a wine of true character. It will age gracefully for a number of years. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Pure and expressive, exuding violet, black cherry, black currant and mineral flavors. Linear and wound up, with a core of fruit to match the firm structure. (BS) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

This exceptional Chianti stole the show at our recent Italian wine tasting for consumers and reminded us why this estate ranks among the best in the Chianti zone. The combination of its complex perfumed aromatics and richly flavored and textured palate impressed from beginning to end. If you're in search of great Chianti or doubt its existence, look no further.

When I'm at home and just drinking wines that I love, I'm probably drinking Chianti. Now, don't get me wrong. I don't love all Chianti, but when it's good it's one of the best values in all of Italy. This is that wine! 2016 is a knockout vintage and this is a perfect example why. Soft, supple tannins and bright, zippy acidity give this wine a rich, round structure on which the bright dark cherry fruit, slightly minty aromas can sing.The only downside to this wine is that it is so good now, we likely will drink it all before we get a chance to see what it's like in its potentially long life.

The nose is full of marasca cherry, hints of truffle, earth, bits of leather, spice, it is really complex. On the palate the wine has richness, structure, balance and shows lots of complexity. The wine really shows the character of the 2016 vintage, depth, structure and a truly savory character, this is no simple, fruity Chianti this is a driven, powerful wine. The tannins are well framed and give a perimeter to the wine but just barely hold in the well-balanced richness and supple middle. This vintage is 88% Sangiovese, 8% Canaiolo and 4% Colorino, it’s aged for 1 year in 55 hectoliter French oak (Allier) barrels, if you’re not up on hectoliter conversion that would fit almost 25 barriques, it’s a BIG barrel, and the wine is Certified Organic. I love this vintage and will be stocking up!
