Wine tasting notes

Ripe dark and red fruit aromas combine with delicate spiciness on the nose. The palate is full and rich with a velvety texture from the fine grained tannins. The finish is long with great persistence in the mouth supported by good acidity and minerality.

Expert reviews

Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2013) - 91 pts

The 2013 Chianti Riserva Vigna delle Conchiglie is a bit more mineral-driven and savory in profile than the Chianti Riserva, which also gives it a slightly austere feel. Chalk, orange peel and anise add nuance, while the fruit lies in the background. Today, the Vigna delle Conchiglie is decidedly less overt than most of the other wines in the range.


JancisRobinson.com (2013) - 17.5 pts

Single vineyard of 0.9 ha - the name refers to the seashells in the soil. Planted 1990 and Antonini is currently planting some white varieties on the adjoining land so that he can add this into the blend, which is currently 100% Sangiovese. Fermented in big oak and aged in large untoasted cask. Mid to light garnet. Fragrant, more floral than the Chianti Superiore. Delicate, elegant and beautifully fresh. Very fine texture, silky already but there's a definite structure under that finesse, great length. (JH)


Wine Spectator (2013) - 93 pts

This red shows depth and structure, showcasing the cherry, almond, earth and briar flavors. Firm, complex and vibrant, with a terrific finish of mineral, pepper and cherry accents. Best now if decanted. Drink now through 2024.
