Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico Riserva 2020

$33.00

The most exciting Chianti Riserva I taste every year is, without a doubt, the masterpiece that comes from Castello di Volpaia. Their track record is unparalleled.

Between making the #1 rated Chianti Classico Riserva in Wine Spectator’s history (even outpointing Castello di Ama’s $400/bottling), their multiple Top 100 appearances or their slew of big scores across the board for their wines, it’s a non-stop winemaking clinic over there.

Nicholas Wines readers simply cannot get enough of the tremendous Tuscan estate and everything they make. Who can blame them? But what NW readers probably don’t know is that the winery feels the same way about you!!!

Every year, no one in New Jersey or in almost any state in America sells as much Volpaia as we do. And while you may think this kind of thing goes unnoticed, if you saw the ‘Special Price’ we were given for the super highly rated 2020 Chianti Classico Riserva, you would change your tune!

The quality is simply outstanding. It’s not like this vintage is any different either. Suckling raved, giving it 94 points and calling it “smooth and textured with vivid fruit underneath and a lingering finish.” Parker’s Wine Advocate chimed in with a 93-point review of their own, for a wine with a “measured intensity that never feels heavy or overdone”.

Expert Reviews

94 Points, James Suckling
Attractive aromas of ripe cherries, dried strawberries, dried orange peel, spices and crushed stones, following through to a medium to full body with compact tannins that are firm and finely grained. Smooth and textured with vivid fruit underneath and a lingering finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

93 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
In the bottle with the black label, the organic 2020 Chianti Classico Riserva offers ripe fruit with measured intensity that never feels heavy or overdone. Achieving this level of balance is not easy in a hot growing season such as this. This wine is characterized by an especially linear and direct personality that pushes it over the palate with good momentum.
