Istine Chianti Classico Riserva Levigne 2017
The estate’s top wine is a selection of the best lots from the 3 vineyards . It is Istine’s most complex, most powerful wine. The Italian press has already caught on, with the Anglo-Saxon it had to take a while to penetrate, but this is a top domain! In a recent tasting in Decanter, Angela’s Riserva came out among the top wines, scoring even higher than wines like Fontodi’s Vigna del Sorbo, Castello di Ama’s Bellavista or Fèlsina’s Rancia!
Antonio Galloni (Vinous): “The 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Levigne is another positively stunning wine in this range. Ample and explosive in the glass, with tremendous resonance, the 2017 is off the charts gorgeous. To be sure, the Riserva is a big, rich wine, but it also offers plenty of Sangiovese character to please purists. Macerated dark cherry, spice, leather, menthol and a whole range of balsamic inflections fill out the layers in a dramatic, towering Chianti Classico Riserva. In a word: stunning.” 97/100
