Uggiano 2015 Roccialta Chianti Riserva

The wine is made up primarily of Sangiovese (90%) with a little Canaiolo, traditionally used for its fruitiness and to soften tannins. The 2015 Chiantis have been very impressive and we are starting to see more of them over here. With a mere 6 months in oak the wine has retained a fair amount of its fruitiness but still shows great typicity for Chianti yet also shows off the vintage: rich and round and fairly full-bodied in the mouth (for a Chianti) – lots of red and black fruit mixing it up with mocha, fig and strawberry-balsamic notes.  Rating: ****
