Winemaker Notes

Cherry and violet aromas, persistent and rounded flavors of spices and mushroom. Great structure with elegant finesse.

Pairs well with meats and meat pasta sauces, poultry and hard cheeses.

This ripe Chianti Classico shows aromas of strawberries, cherries and red plums. Hints of earth, too. Full body, juicy tannins and a medium-deep finish. Delicious now, but it will be better in 2020.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Black cherry, blackberry and dark plum fruit is allied to a muscular frame, with dense tannins. Tobacco, rosemary, thyme and tar notes play supporting roles as this builds to a long finish. Best from 2023 through 2038.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Nozzole is a dark and fruit-forward wine with a beautiful profile of ripe, succulent cherry fruit. You taste the bright sunshine and softness of this cheerful Tuscan red. This is the kind of wine that immediately puts you in a good mood (also thanks to that low price tag). The fruit is ripened to that perfect point of softness, maintaining structure and acidity all the same. This is one of the best values of the vintage.

Tasting Panel

Ripe berries and spice; tangy, racy, and complex with a long finish.

The Nozzole estate produces a Chianti Classico Riserva and a single-vineyard wine from the superb "La Forra" parcel. Cabernet Sauvignon, cultivated principally in another parcel of the estate planted in 1981 called "Il Pareto," yields a pure Cabernet wine first produced in the 1987 vintage. The principal white vineyards of the Nozzole estate, the "Le Bruniche" and "Casa Vecchia" vineyards, once planted in Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia, were replanted to Chardonnay in the early 1980s. These vineyards now produce Nozzole Le Bruniche, a distinctive, pure varietal Chardonnay.

Chianti Classico Wine

Tuscany, Italy

View all products

One of the first wine regions anywhere to be officially recognized and delimited, Chianti Classico is today what was originally defined simply as Chianti. Already identified by the early 18th century as a superior zone, the official name of Chianti was proclaimed upon the area surrounding the townships of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole, just north of Siena, by Cosimo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany in an official decree in 1716.

However, by the 1930s the Italian government had appended this historic zone with additonal land in order to capitalize on the Chianti name. It wasn’t until 1996 that Chianti Classico became autonomous once again when the government granted a separate DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) to its borders. Ever since, Chianti Classico considers itself no longer a subzone of Chianti.

Many Classicos are today made of 100% Sangiovese but can include up to 20% of other approved varieties grown within the Classico borders. The best Classicos will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and be full-bodied with plenty of ripe fruit (plums, black cherry, blackberry). Also common among the best Classicos are expressive notes of cedar, dried herbs, fennel, balsamic or tobacco.

Among Italy's elite red grape varieties, Sangiovese has the perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Somm Secret—Sangiovese doubles under the alias, Nielluccio, on the French island of Corsica where it produces distinctly floral and refreshing reds and rosés.
