Paolo De Marchi has more than earned his reputation as one of Tuscany’s finest winemakers. Wine Spectator refers to him as the “Chianti legend”. Antonio Galloni famously remarked, “Make no mistake about it, these are some of the most exceptional wines being made anywhere in the world.” That is true and Paolo’s Chianti Classico’s are always some of the best bangs for your buck out there.
The 2017 Sangiovese dominant blend already got James Suckling’s blessing with a 93-point score, and usually lands a 92+ score each year from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. But more important than scores, the incredible burst of flavor and aromas that Paolo gets out of his Sangiovese this year is absurd. Made in stainless steal, this boasts fresh notes of Bing Cherry, plum and warm apple pie. It’s got so much energy. Smooth and silky and just a pleasure to drink, especially as a winter time sipper.

93 Points, James Suckling
A very pretty 2017 Chianti Classico with a beautiful core of ripe fruit and layers of round, lightly chewy tannins. Dark cherries, walnuts and chocolate.
