The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Strada al Sasso (100% Sangiovese aged in neutral barrique for 12 months) is a plush and rich wine with dark cherry fruit, plum, moist tobacco and cured leather. The wine spreads evenly over the palate with broad intensity and a long succession of dark fruit flavors. I love the texture and fullness of the wine and the tartness is significantly downplayed, which is not easy to do with the naturally acidic Sangiovese.

This estate in the comune of Castelnuovo Berardenga did not produce the Chianti Classico Riserva Strada al Sasso in 2014. They will skip over that vintage and deliver the next edition in 2015, only then it will become a 100% Sangiovese Chianti Classico Gran Selezione wine instead.
