2015 Poggerino, Chianti Classico
Hi Steve. I see you have been buying and drinking a number of 2015 Chiantis. Any particular favourites?
Poggerino, Volpaia and Fonterutoli are all excellent. Probably too late for the latter as the SAQ has the 2016 on the shelves. Note that my comments are only for the normales. Haven't tried many of the Riservas or Gran Selezion's yet.
On a related note, you might also want to try the 2015 Querce Bettina Rosso di Montalcino.
I may be biased, but I love the Poggio Scalette CC, and the 2015 is the best vintage I’ve tried.
Thanks guys. The Nipozzano Chianti Rufina Riserva has been our go to wine for pasta and pizza for many years, with some Castello di Ama, Isole E Olena and Volpaia in the mix when something better is desired. We eat a lot of Italian wine friendly food, and are always on the lookout for wines to match.
