  1. Monteguelfo Chianti DOCG 2020
    Monteguelfo Chianti DOCG 2020
    Wow! This was such a wonderful surprise and terrific value Chianti from the estates of Andrea Cecchi. Made from 90% Sangiovese and 10% Colorino, the wine does not see any oak and has a tradiotional leaning and plenty of character, particularly for a wine at this price. The Cecchi family has 125 years of winemaking history and have some excellent vineyards at their disposal.

    It's a wonderfully vibrant & fresh expression of sangiovese that retains its fleshy and soft fruits throughout with a pillowy texture. Hints of black cherry and wild forest fruits with a touch of leather and some savoury dried herbs.

  2. Antinori Peppoli Chianti Classico 2018 375ml
    Antinori Peppoli Chianti Classico 2018 375ml
    Antinori is a name synonymous with wine in Italy, the equivalent of the royal family of wine in the country. Intimately involved in the wine industry of Italy since 1385, initially in Tuscany, but in more recent years their influence has grown seeing them involved in wine-making projects across the country.

    They were instrumental in the renaissance of Chianti and their portfolio of wines includes some stellar names such as Tignanello - the Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc blend that was most influential in the Super Tuscan movement, Solaia - the Cabernet dominant blend also from the Tignanello Estate and, of course, the beautiful Peppoli Chianti Classico. PWS

    The 2018 Chianti Classico Pèppoli is gracious and beautifully perfumed. Crushed red berry fruit, spice, blood orange, mint and orange zest give this silky Chianti Classico lovely flavor depth. I would prefer to drink it over the next few years. ANTONIO GALLONI, Vinous

  3. Pandolfa Federico Sangiovese 2019
    Pandolfa Federico Sangiovese 2019
    There's a crunch to the air that you breathe at the highest point of the Pandolfa vineyards, some 300m above the gorgeous 17th century es-tate now owned by Marco Cirese and his wife Alice. It's easy to spot the Adriatic through the hilly terrain of Predappio which no doubt plays its part in the coolness of that breeze and the unique character of the wines from up here.

    The winery is a packed with stainless tanks, with some barrels tucked away in a dark corner. Most are large Slavonian 'Botti' but there are a few barriques. Thankfully here at Pandolfa they've worked hard to allow the fruit to do the talking, and we are all the better off for it.

    Mid-weight and airy crunchy fruit that sizzles along nicely. No oak or other artifact to encumber the lively and fresh palate. Juicy fruits and easy to slide into. PWS

  4. Fontaleoni Chianti DOCG 2019
    Fontaleoni Chianti DOCG 2019
    The 2019 Chianti Colli Senesi is a fresh, fruity red to drink now and over the next few years. Sweet red cherry fruit and floral notes are nicely lifted in this mid-weight, perfumed Chianti Colli Senesi. Best of all, the 2019 is a terrific value. ANTONIO GALLONI

    Red fruited, spicy and attractively perfumed. As with the previous vintage this is a Chianti that is all about uncomplicated pleasure and it is built for enjoyment and to be consumed with food. Cherry and aniseed notes, somewhat gritty tannins and a faintly bitter twist of cherry pith on the finish all adding a little more interest and making me really want some salumi and to be sitting in the sunshine somewhere in Tuscany. Not sure what to say here, this wine seems to always deliver on quality verse hip pocket damage in a serious way. Outstanding value. ROSCOE

  5. Camporsino Chianti DOCG 2018
    Camporsino Chianti DOCG 2018
    It would be pretty hard to find a Chianti at this price and this quality anywhere in the market. It offers dark cherries, violets and leather all bundled up in a tight and delicious little package. There are tannins here (to be expected) but they are quite soft and while the palate is on the lighter side overall it delivers pure drinking pleasure in its red cherry, spice flecked palate. This is refreshing in both in price and quality. PWS

  6. Sutton Grange Fairbank Sangiovese 2020
    Sutton Grange Fairbank Sangiovese 2020
    Mel Chester is doing wonderful things at Sutton Grange and one of our favourites is here Sangiovese. This has been planted for some time at the winery and the older vine material produces beautiful mid-weight sangiovese that is truly authentic but with a nod to its home here in the Victoria hills.

    Classic red and dark cherry notes underly a potpourri of dried herb, cola and dark spiced fruits. The palate opens with red and black fruits that are fleshy and bright kept in check by sangiovese's edgy tannins and frisky acidity. Its supple and long and super versatile at the table with a mix of savoury edge and sweet fruit that is so appealing. PWS

  7. Querciabella Mongrana 2017
    Querciabella Mongrana 2017

    Querciabella has been on a roll over the last few years. I can’t say enough good things about these wines, all of which merit your serious consideration. Querciabella doesn’t make a big deal about the fact that their vineyards are now biodynamically farmed, but then again they don’t have to? The wines speak for themselves.....  ANTONIO GALLONI

    This remarkable estate is the life-long passion of Sebastiano Cossia Costiglioni and before him his father, Guiseppe, who planted the first vines at the estate as a hobby in the early 1970's. Giacomo Tacchis and Guido di Santi were bought on in the formative years as winemaking consultants and directed the estate to biodynamics.

    Today the estate's technical direction is overseen by another of Italy's greatest winemaking talents in Luca Currado of famed Piemontese producer, Vietti, while day-to-day running of the estate's vineyards and winemaking is handled by a passionate team led by Dales D'Allesandro and Manfred Ing. New investment in the cellars over the past years will also continue to push the quality of the wines to new levels and maintain Querciabella at the top of the Chianti tree.

    Raised in concrete to retain varietal character and freshness the name of the game here is drinkability and Mongrana delivers that in spades with its cohort of plump, juicy, red and dark fruit characters, lovely perfume and gently giving tannins. It's built to over deliver on character while remaining fresh and inviting, it's most at home on the table with food, family and friends. This is a perennial favourite with us for its sheer deliciousness and the 2017 is no exception. A Little darker than last year's iteration but also with a dollop more lip-smacking fruit. Great little wine. ROSCOE

  8. Balio di Zola Balitore Sangiovese di Romagna 2018
    Balio di Zola Balitore Sangiovese di Romagna 2018
    Red berries, cherries and exotic spice on the nose. Nuanced, scented nose combines raspberry, redcurrant, tobacco, leather and a mineral component. Suave, juicy and complex, with harmonious acidity giving shape and freshness to the wine's concentrated red plum, tobacco and herbal flavors. This subtly intense midweight is still tightly coiled today. Finishes savory and minerally, with substantial but polished tannins and lingering perfume. Very impressive Sangiovese di Romagna. www.vinous.com

    Querciabella Chianti Classico 2018 375ml
    The 2018 Chianti Classico is classy, polished and exceptionally beautiful. Like so many wines in 2018, the Chianti Classico is aromatic and gracious in feel, more finesse than power. Silky tannins wrap around a core of bright Sangiovese fruit. From start to finish, the 2018 is all class. ANTONIO GALLONI

    Isole E Olena Chianti Classico 2018
    Besides a healthy dose of Canaiolo Nero, proprietor Paolo De Marchi blends in a dash of Syrah to give backbone, especially in lighter vintages - he believes it to be less invasive than other international varieties. Fragrantly expressive, enticing notes of aromatic herbs, rose, fennel, clove and fresh forest floor greet the nose. While wonderfully medium in weight, this packs a lot in, especially tangy blackcurrant. Chalky tannins are subtly assertive and will carry the wine through the midterm. DECANTER

    Vecchie Terre di Montefili Chianti Classico 2018
    The 2018 Chianti Classico is fabulous. Rich, deep and wonderfully expansive, the 2018 is captivating from the very first taste. A rush of blue/blackish fruit, spice, new leather, licorice and dark spice saturates the palate. In 2018, the Chianti Classico is deep and especially concentrated, but it all works so well. Readers will find a wine of uncommon power, intensity and richness. The 2018 is a big wine, there is no question about it. ANTONIO GALLONI

  12. Talenti Rosso di Montalcino 2019
    Talenti Rosso di Montalcino 2019
    The 2019 Rossos give an exciting preview of how the upcoming Brunellos may fare. Some examples like this have nothing to complain about in terms of quality and complexity. It's super-pale in the glass - suggestive of the relatively high position of the estate in Sant'Angelo in Colle - with bright red currant aromas and pomegranate flavour, both completed by black pepper complexity and a smoky finish. The palate is almost full, while chewy and sweet, grainy tannins lend perfect balance with refreshing acidity and a broad, cherry kernel finish typical of Sangiovese. Great definition.

  13. Felsina Chianti Classico 2018
    Felsina Chianti Classico 2018
    With a staggering 18+ tre biccherie awards to their name, Fattoria di Felsina is not only one of the greatest producers of Chianti Classico in the zone, but can also lay claim to being one of the greatest estates in Italy.

    Located on the southern boundary of the Chianti Classico zone at Beradegna, Felsina is run by the thoughtful, Giuseppe Mazzocolin, and together with consultant oenologist Franco Bernabei, he has guided the estate masterfully through the massive changes that have taken place in Tuscany in the last 30 years, always mindful of only making changes he thought would further the quality of the wines without obliterating the regional nuance.

    The 2018 Chianti Classico Berardenga is endowed with so much class. In 2018, the Classico is a bit more restrained than it can be. That mid-weight sense of structure, though, gives the wine quite a bit of early appeal. Even so, I would cellar the 2018 for a few years, as all the elements haven't fully come together just yet. Dark cherry, game, smoke, licorice and earthy notes are a reminder we are in Castelnuovo Berardenga, even if the 2018 has less weight and overt power than Fèlsina fans are used to seeing.

    Felsina Chianti Classico 2019
    The 2019 Chianti Classico Berardenga is a classic wine for the year. Bright, perfumed and light on its feet, the 2019 Chianti Classico Berardenga is so wonderfully expressive. There is a feeling of vibrancy to the 2019 that is hugely appealing. A wine of energy more than power. Crushed red berry fruit, cinnamon linger in a gorgeous Chianti Classico that is more about transparency than power. ANTONIO GALLONI

    A beautiful, creamy red with cherry and chocolate character. Hints of dried earth. It's medium-to full-bodied with creamy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. shows firmness and tension. Very drinkable now, but will improve beautifully with age JAMES SUCKLING

    Le Chiuse Rosso di Montalcino 2019

    Le Chiuse lies on the southeast hillside of appellation, just below the village of Montalcino, close to Biondi-Santi. Altitude and schist soils make the Rosso fresh and complex, not without potential to age. This 2019 shows a graceful structure, very well integrated crisp acidity, good fruit and light, ripe tannins. Vinous in the glass, it's full of intense strawberry and violet, with a super-fresh character on the palate of red currants and cedar, then slightly peppery. The estate selects bigger clusters for its Rosso in order to minimise its tannin extraction compared to Brunello... ALDO FIORDELLI, www.decanter.com

    Fighting Gully Road Sangiovese La Longa 2017
    The second release in the reserve Black Label range; what sets it apart is the overall restraint, especially in ripeness and the wine's underlying tension. Excellent fruit but more a savoury defined wine: earthy, new leather, oak spice, black cherries and pips, Italian bitter herbs, steely and energetic with precision tannins. This is outstanding Australian sangiovese. (97) JANE FAULKNER, James Halliday's Wine Companion

  17. Podere Le Boncie "5" 2018
    Podere Le Boncie "5" 2018
    This is the little brother/sister of "Le Trame" from Podere Le Boncie.  The wine was originally sold only through the winery only and was essentially created from fruit of vines younger and/or less well-positioned.

    The original composition was sangiovese, conaiolo, mammalo, colorino and fogliatonda butnow consists of mainly Snagiovese and two rows of conaiolo. Now it is mainly a blend of sangiovese with a touch of conaiolo with grapes sourced from outside out the Chianti Classico zone.

    This comes off with a pretty and nuanced nose of red fruits, red cherry and a subtle minerally spice that accents the clean fruit profile. Mid to light in style with nice focus and a little bump of plush fruit through the middle palate that carries the wine along nicely. The 2018 is a touch plusher then usual which suits the style well. Unmistakably Tuscan, unmistakably sangiovese. Great stuff.

  18. Siro Pacenti Rosso di Montalcino 2018
    Siro Pacenti Rosso di Montalcino 2018
    Pale red; this wine’s very pretty color strikes me as being one of the less dark Rossos made by Pacenti in years. Inviting floral notes (rose, violet) complement strawberry, red cherry and delicate flint and herb aromas. Then very fresh and juicy, with a steely quality to the red fruit and herb flavors that are really perked up by a strong peppery component on the long, lively youthfully chewy finish. Made from 15 years old Sangiovese vines, this is a really lovely fruit-forward and also surprisingly spicy Rosso di Montalcino. 25% new oak for 12 -3 months. IAN D'AGATA, Vinous.com

  19. Grattamacco Bolgheri Rosso 2019
    Grattamacco Bolgheri Rosso 2019
    Aromas and flavors of crushed blackcurrants and berries to this fresh, medium-bodied red, together with a hint of black tea. Tight, youthful tannins. What's there not to like? JAMES SUCKLING

    Grattamacco's releases come from the more fertile soils, halfway down the hill from Sette Cieli, closer to the Med, and this setting brings with it plushness, opulence and early-drinking joy. Made from 50% cabernet sauvignon, 20% cabernet franc, 20% merlot and 10% sangiovese, this is a true Super-Tuscan blend and it is baffling just how approachable and delicious the wine is already. It bursts with heady, black fruit and discreet herb and spice notes. The oak, alcohol and tannin all sit in the background giving you a truly classy Bolgheri experience at around a tenth of the price of the big guns. MATTHEW JUKES

    This is the best example of this wine I have seen in years, and I always like it. This is what people want when they talk about the "Super Tuscans". It's a wine that, while being made from predominantly Bordeaux varieties with around 10% Sangiovese it still looks, smells and feels like Bolgheri. In Fact its statuesque presence of fruit, slightly gritty tannins, wild spices, Mediterranean herbs, black olive tapenade and veins of sour cherry would lead you away from the varieties if tasted blind, at least initially. A vigorous swirl or two and those Bordelaise characters start coming to the fore with a little more plum and blackberry. The voluminous palate builds substance as it rumbles along to its expansive finish. It's a tremendous effort really. Insane value!
    Grab a dozen or so and drink them over a decade or more. This is a no brainer in my mind. No one will regret having this weapon in their stash when they open it. ROSCOE

    Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino 2019
    Vincenzo Abbruzzese is one of the most outspoken, passionate growers in Montalcino. His beautifully tended vineyards yield some of the richest wines in the region; and that’s where most of the focus is – on the vineyards. The winery itself is unremarkable and is equipped with just the bare essentials. All of the wines are aged in large, neutral oak; what comes through is Abbruzzese’s commitment to low yields, sustainable farming and non-interventionalist winemaking. ANTONIO GALLONI

    A stellar effort in a warm year that has produced a plush and sweet style rosso that is all but Brunello in name. This is vibrant and rich at the same time with sweet spice peppered over the warm cherry and black raspberry fruits that spill out the glass. Plenty of depth but remains light on its feet. Great stuff! PWS
