With the wine world turned upside down, 48 bottles of this historic wine became available to us again. They won’t be around for long…
There can be a lot of hyperbole used in internet wine sales but you won’t hear any today– not from us at least ;). This offer is a simple one: every year we offer Castello di Volpaia’s Chianti Classico Riserva from one of the leading estates in Tuscany, at one of the best prices in the country. This year, Wine Spectator gave them the highest rating a Chianti Classico has ever received. #1. Move over, 1990 Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Bellavista!
97 points for a $40 wine? That just doesn’t happen– until today.
The 2016 Volpaia Chianti Classico Riserva 2016 is big and juicy, with layers of dark fruits, bramble and a long finish. It’s the perfect wine for a grilled steak eaten al fresco on any late summer evening. However, it’s a very limited lot of wine– the highest-rated Chianti Classico for such an affordable price doesn’t last long. You do not want to miss this!

“Enticing aromas of black cherry, black currant and violet are allied to flavors of iron, wet earth and spice. This is loaded with fruit, vibrant acidity and well-mannered tannins. Shows terrific harmony now, yet possesses the structure to age. The long, mouthwatering finish extends the dark fruit and minerally elements. Best from 2021 through 2040.” – Bruce Sanderson
A knockout, home-run of a deal. Possibly the best deal of 2019.
Great with any piece of red meat, poultry or fall vegetables.
