10993952_728655193919473_6331448557780657298_nTwo days of tasting, with over 300 wines tasted by two different committees of Slow Wine and here is our first response.

These 15 wines that we liked the most and that made the Chianti Classico Collection 2015 an important time to learn more than 156 companies and you can taste the latest vintages output.

In particular, it has established the elegant 2013 that gave the sangiovese not too powerful, but to drink very fresh and secure longevity. The 2012 is a thousandth very hot, so he gave the results patchy, with interesting wines especially among selections.

    Charles, although many good Chianti Classicos are included in the Slow Food list, too many very good CCs were left out, including, Castello dei Rampolla, Il Palazzino, Fontodi, Badia a Coltibuono, and Castellare. And of course perhaps the best of all, MonteVertine, who chooses not to call itself a Chianti.
