Wine Spectator: 92
A bright, succulent style, this exudes cherry, strawberry, earth and tobacco aromas and flavors, with spicy character. Shows vibrant structure and balance, with a lingering finish. Sangiovese and Merlot.

The certified organic Volpaia 2020 Chianti Classico is a terrific base wine that offers clean fruit flavors and an easy-drinking style. Value is one of the key identifying factors in this appellation, yet this fact often goes overlooked. Sangiovese (blended here with 10% Merlot) offers versatile wines with plenty of sweet cherry, spice and blueberry preserves. Best After 2022.
James Suckling: 93
Black-cherry and orange-peel aromas and flavors. Some lead pencil and slate, too. It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins and firm acidity, which adds verve and tension to the wine. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

Pure and beautifully integrated, the 2020 Chianti Classico is finessed with raspberry coulis, licorice candy, and crushed violets. It has a silky mouthfeel within a medium to slightly fuller body, with perfectly ripe black cherry, and its floral perfume lasts on the finish. This is a wonderful and polished expression hailing from the village of Radda.
