Tenuta di Capraia Chianti Classico Riserva 2015
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Tenuta di Capraia|
A broad yet supple red, this displays pure cherry flavors, with underbrush, earth and wild herb accents. Tips toward the astringent side in the balance, maintaining a beam of fruit on the finish. Best from 2021 through 2035. 1,000 cases made, 500 cases imported.
The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva is another compelling wine from Capraia. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, mocha, new leather, licorice, chocolate, spice and menthol infuse the 2016 with striking breadth, texture and creaminess. Powerful and also mysterious, with much still left to be said, Capraia's 2015 Riserva is simply fabulous. Don't miss it!
