Even before all the critics weigh in and shower this wine, (the highest-ever scoring CC Riserva in Wine Spectator), I decided to lay into a number of bottles of this great wine. I know darn well when the critics come in on this one they’re going to be high.
In the terrific 2018 in Chianti, cream rises to the top. Castello di Volpaia’s Chianti Classico Riserva very much resembles the 2016. It’s big and juicy, with layers of dark fruit, bramble and an extremely long finish. It balances vibrant acidity against beautiful tannin and may have even more life ahead of it than the 2016. Buy some for now but make sure to sock a few away. Drink until 2045!

Roasted Leg of lamb or Grandma’s Sunday sauce are both a perfect match.
