Badia a Coltibuono 2015 Riserva (Chianti Classico)
Made with organically grown grapes, this opens with enticing aromas of ripe red berry, dried aromatic herb and a whiff new leather. A blend of 90% Sangiovese with Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo and Colorino making up the rest, it's smooth and savory, delivering mature Marasca cherry, licorice and a hint of tobacco set against firm fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2027. Kerin O’Keefe

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
