The 2006 Chianti Classico shows some of those qualities in a bold expression of fruit that bursts from the glass in a full-bodied style. Sweet scents of earthiness, spices and French oak add complexity. This is an awesome, richly flavored Chianti from one of Tuscany's top terroirs and most inspired producers. Though not inexpensive, the wine is insanely delicious. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2021.

Blackberry and black cherry aromas, with hints of spices and black licorice. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a long finish. Polished and well-defined. All in finesse. Best after 2009.

It takes some time for this dark Chianti Classico to emerge in the glass, backward and suppressed as it is in its youth. At first, it gives an earthiness, a scent of beef bouillon, of woodland mushrooms. The power of the wine is muffled under mouth-coating tannins, but the tannins are finely textured, neither aggressive nor bitter. And they're balanced by the potent fruit extract that emerges in a beautiful finish. As a young wine, this is start, modern, architectural. And those structural elements somehow allow the substantive, savory depth of fruit to remain the central focus. Built for the long term, this will age with grace.

The 2007 Chianti Classico is a gorgeous wine endowed with superb purity in its dark fruit. This is so impressive for its textural elegance and overall finesse. In keeping with the house style, there is plenty of richness, but never heaviness. Today the Chianti Classico is understandably quite primary but it should develop plenty of noble perfume over the coming years. Still, it is open and very much accessible for readers who want to check it out today. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017.

Rampolla uses strict criteria to select the Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes for this refined, elegant wine. Endowed with finesse by nature. Fragrances are intense with hints of cherries and spices, while the fruit is soft on the palate with subtle freshness and good structure.
