AG 91 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - The 2009 Chianti Classico is one of the most open, young wines I have ever tasted from Castell'in Villa. Sweet tobacco, dried flowers, red cherries and mint inform an unusually silky, radiant wine from this historic property. Even with all of the generosity, the 2009 has plenty of lively buffering acidity. Castell'in Villa fans will delight in a wine that won't require tons of cellar time to come around, but classicist may find the 2009 too open.
According to Wine Spectator - A dense, compact style, showing leather, underbrush and dried cherry flavors matched to stiff, dry tannins and a stony element. Offers a long, chewy finish. Best from 2015 through 2024.
Winemakers Notes - The Castell’in Villa Chianti Classico captures the fruit of the Sangiovese grapes and the earthy, spicy and slightly wild traces of the soil in a beautiful blend. It is an unusually concentrated Chianti Classico, that will invariably benefit from age. Rated 90+
