Though saturated with black currant and blackberry fruit and backed by opaque tannins, this red is pure and balanced. Thyme, iron, leather and tar notes give this complexity, while the finish goes into overtime. Best from 2023 through 2040.—Bruce Sanderson Special Designation: Highly Recommended Region: Tuscany, Italy Issue Date: Oct. 31, 2018
From the Wine Spectator:The Stianti Mascheroni family has worked in the tiny hilltoptown of Volpaia since 1966, but they and winemaker Lorenzo Regoli have reachednew heights with the 2015 Riserva. Their highest-scoring wine to date, its abalanced, complex red with a long, gorgeous finish. The grapes, sourced fromeight different parcels, are farmed organically in the sandstone soils on thehillside below the town. They are crushed and vinified in steel tanks, thenaged in a mix of Slavonian oak casks (80 percent) and French oak barriques (20percent) for two years.
