Poggiotondo 2008 Vigna delle Conchiglie Riserva Sangiovese (Chianti)

  1. $79
An upscale Chianti, this offers modern touches of cherry, chocolate and spice, backed by a rich, velvety mouthfeel. Crisp acidity keeps the palate refreshed.  — M.L.  (12/31/2012)

Barone Ricasoli 2003 Vin Santo Castello di Brolio Malvasia (Chianti)

  1. $50
This is a gorgeous Vin Santo with richly caramelized flavors and extraordinary smoothness, opulence and persistency. Its modern and round—there are no sharp points here—and absent are those resin or tar-like flavors you sometimes find. Instead this is an absolutely pure expression of caramel delight.  — M.L.  (12/15/2008)

Chigi Saracini 2003 Villachigi Sangiovese (Chianti)

  • Best Buy
  1. $13
Deep and modern, with ripe black fruit, bacon and cedar to the full-framed nose. The mouth is just as good, with dense plum, black cherry, prune and vanilla. Lasting on the finish, with a spicy, warm aftertaste. A sure-fire powerhouse and a winner from Chigi Saracini.  — W.E.  (4/1/2005)

Giacomo Mori 2005 Castelrotto Riserva Sangiovese (Chianti)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $40
This is an intense and unexpected wine with austere and sophisticated notes of resin, tar, cola, black fruit and spice. The wine is elegant and streamlined in the mouth (thanks to 18 months of oak aging) but it also feels focused and determined on the palate.  — M.L.  (11/1/2009)

Borgo Salcetino 1999 RosSole Sangiovese (Chianti)

  1. $28
The nose of this Sangiovese-Merlot is muscular and broad, with a hint of earth and mushroom sneaking in between the folds of deep red fruit. More robust fruit fills out the palate, while it finishes long and chocolaty, with notes of coffee. Quite sturdy and eminently satisfying.  — M.S.  (11/15/2003)

Da Vinci 2007 Sangiovese (Chianti)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $16
What a nice surprise! Here is a rich Chianti with a dark, impenetrable appearance and elegant aromas of spice, bursting red cherry and blueberry preserves. The wine is chewy and soft with loads of pulpy fruit on the close. Pair it with steak or mixed grilled meats.  — M.L.  (11/1/2009)

Poggio al Casone 2005 Riserva Sangiovese (Chianti)

  • Online Exclusive
Handsome and rich in flavors, this well extracted Chianti Riserva offers beautiful aromas of cherry, blackberry, spice, leather and moist earth. The wine is smooth and silky and imparts a very soft, but firm quality of tannin that would pair with a wide range of meat-based dishes.  — M.L.  (11/1/2009)

Campobello 2003 Villa di Campobello Sangiovese (Chianti)

  • Best Buy
  1. $10
Sweet and intoxicating, with caramel, baked fruit and cotton candy to the nose. Meaty on the palate, with full plum, boysenberry and cherry flavors. Best of all, the balance is just where it should be. As a whole there’s nothing not to like about it.  — W.E.  (4/1/2005)
