  4. Felsina Vin Santo 2007 375ml
    JS94
    WA94+
    $38.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94+ Points! The 2007 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico (375-milliliters) is a gorgeous wine with so many descriptors that apply to the ever-evolving and complex bouquet. This golden dessert wine offers distinct aromas of dried apricot, honey and saffron. But give it a few moments and earthy or autumnal tones of wild mushroom, forest floor and aged cheese also rise to the top. The effect is almost savory and definitely very sophisticated. The wine glides smoothly over the palate with creamy richness and viscous smoothness. - Monica Larner, robertparker.com Learn More
  5. Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico Riserva 2016
    DEC93
    $28.98
    Availability:In Stock
    A selection of bunches from Volpaia's best sites among their 43ha at lofty heights in Radda-in-Chianti. The estate waited until 3 October to start picking in order to bring the grapes in at full ripeness. Distinctly peppery red fruits mark the nose, with rosehip, celery and anise backing them up. The palate is focused and bright with brisk acidity, though the tannins need time to unwind. Nice tension here. - Decanter Magazine Learn More

It is so pure and minimalist in the end, showing the effect of traditional, hands-off winemaking. Don’t miss this. Decant before serving. One for the cellar. Drink or hold. - JamesSuckling.com

All the elements meld together in this effortless, classy wine from the family. The 2016 is quite accessible today, but it also has enough brightness to age nicely for a number of years. What a pretty wine it is.

  13. Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia 2016
    JS96
    WA96
    VM94-97+
    $44.98
    Availability:In Stock

    96 Points! The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia knocks it out of the park. Like the other new releases from Fèlsina, this pure expression of Sangiovese needs more time to evolve and improve with bottle age. But even at this young stage, you are made fully aware of the beautiful intensity and complexity of the quality fruit at its core. There is so much energy and tension here, further reinforced by the fresh acidity of the vintage. There are vibrant tones of wild cherry, raspberry and spice, followed up by white truffle and tilled earth. - Monica Larner, robertparker.com

  14. Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva 2016
    WA94
    VM90-93
    $26.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! Streamlined and elegant, this mid-weight red trots out notes of grilled herb and dark fruit nuances that segue to spice, tilled earth and savory tobacco, with great complexity. This 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardenga is still a bit closed and tight, but this beautiful wine boasts all the best qualities of this vintage. It shows elegance and power, two contrasting characteristics that only work well together in the world's most achieved expressions. The most satisfying aspect of this Riserva is the crisp acidity on the close that keeps the palate refreshed and ready for the next sip. - Monica Larner, robertparker.com Learn More

  16. Gagliole Chianti Classico Rubiolo 2016
    JS92
    WA91
    VM90
    $14.98
    Availability:In Stock
    91 Points!  This wine is an absolute steal. The 2016 Chianti Classico Rubiolo is 95% Sangiovese with 5% Merlot. Most of the grapes come from the Panzano area, and a smaller percentage comes from Castellina in Chianti. Thanks to some of the high-altitude positioning of the vineyards (up to 500 meters above sea level), grapes were harvested late (in mid-October) in this cooler vintage. This is one of the reasons you get so much fruit freshness with intense berry aromas. The Panzano in Chianti vineyard has old vines planted in compact clay soils with galestro stone. The Castellina area has similar yet slightly looser soils with terraces that show increased vigor and fertility among the plants. This wine is not as dark or dense compared to the 2015 vintage, yet it is fresher and more elegant. - Monca Larner, robertparker.com

  17. Fattoria Basciano Chianti Rufina 2015
    $11.98
    Availability:In Stock
    This Chianti was a staple at the Orange store for years, though this is the first time this ‘regular’ bottling of the Fattoria Basciano Chianti Rufina 2015 has appeared here.  We hadn’t seen the wine in a while.  The fact that this came from the juicy 2015 vintage made a perfect platform for Basciano's stylistic bent.  Key words that seem to come up consistently when we talk about Basciano is ‘lip smacking’ and 'juicy'.  Father Renzo and son Paolo Masi run something of a negociant enterprise with the idea of consistently creating enviable quality at attractive prices.  This they do quite well.
     
    The 2015 has the bright, slippery, ripe black and blue fruit core that should appeal to anyone.  The wine is packed with tender fruit, has plenty of energy, and is far too easy to haul off and drink for something from Rufina.  At this point we don’t see a lot of the minerally terroir that appears in a supporting role in most efforts from this part of Chianti.  But this wine is the proverbial, succulent ‘fastball down the middle’.
     
    Wine Spectator’s deors work efficiently here, “Pure aromas and flavors of cherry, blackberry and floral gain depth from earth and leafy tobacco accents. Firms up on the finish, with a pleasant astringency.”  One doesn’t write paragraphs on this one.  The Basciano simply wants to be liked and it succeeds admirably on that score.  Don’t let the $12 price scare you either.  This delivers plenty of character and value as well.
