This is a sensual wine with notes of cherry fruit, tobacco, leather and hints of licorice and spice. The elegant tannins balance nicely with the fruit, all underlined by a fabulous stratum of acidity, making this a complex wine with incontestable structure and power. A long and satisfying finish confirms this Sangiovese is true to its terroir.
This is tightly wound, fresh and austere now, its cherry, almond, mineral and tobacco flavors compressed. Hard to see where this is going, yet no one element sticks out, so the potential is fine. Best from 2023 through 2040.
A spicy and decadent Chianti Classico that shows plenty of dried cherries, vanilla, mahogany and bark. Full-bodied with integrated but drying tannins, some good acidity and a round, fruit-driven finish. Drink from 2023.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Montebello Sette feels just as important as it sounds. It offers big, mature and dense fruit that you can chew on. This pure Sangiovese carries itself with great fullness, generous fruit and nicely integrated tannins, and it begs for a steak au poivre. You can’t overstate the thickness and softness here. Some 15,000 bottles were produced.
