Wine SpectatorA rich, plum- and black cherry-infused red, pitting the lush texture against a solid base of tannins. Tobacco, earth and mineral notes add depth. The finish is vibrant and long. Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino. Drink now through 2030. 4,000 cases made, 840 cases imported.
VinousRocca di Montegrossi's 2017 Chianti Classico is a rich, exuberant wine that is going to need at least a few years in bottle to settle down. Super-ripe, dense and concentrated, the 2017 may very well shock readers with its intensity. Then again, that is 2017. Super-ripe dark plum, espresso, spice and licorice all race out of the glass. It will be interesting to see where the 2017 goes in the coming years. Today, it is shockingly raw and unformed.
