From Rome through Florence, top restaurant wine lists all find a space for these age-worthy Chianti Classicos from vintages stretching back to the early 1970s. This is where the longevity and transformative capabilities of Sangiovese are best illustrated.

Tasting Note:

"Savory herbs, tobacco, mint, licorice and dark cherries take shape in the glass as the 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva opens up. Deceptively medium in body, the 2008 emerges over time with striking inner perfume and gorgeous depth, all while retaining its weightless, gracious personality. The 2008 is one of the more refined Riservas I have tasted from Castell'in Villa. It should drink well pretty much upon release."
